I was born in Merida, Yucatan in 1984. In 2010, after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, I decided to move to North Carolina where in 2014 changed gears and started working as a self-taught professional artist participating in multiple exhibitions in diverse cultural centers. Currently, I find myself living and working in Merida, where I keep pursuing my art career.
The existing yet ignored relationship between nervous system, thought and emotion are the core of my work; interest that surged from my own experience with chronic pain and the pathway to healing. The knowledge I had to acquire and the steps necessary to recover made me understand the connection between mind and body.
While examining the anatomy of my organism I became aware of the visual similarities among cells, organs, plant life and marine creatures. These elements are an esthetic part of the majority of my compositions and a recurrent theme that I look to present. Through a graphic process I examine and integrate new concepts that make me closer to a wholesome life and at the same time I reflect and put forward the multidimensionality of the human being.
In my practice the technique and the material are symbols of transformation, is through the action of cutting that a sheet of paper reveals its true identity, comparable to observe a person that is removing, carefully and precisely, what is not working and by doing that reveals its authentic self.
