Bio & Statement
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, Yucatan, 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 wholeness where I was involved searching to heal. The knowledge I had to acquire and the needed steps to recover made me understand the connection between mind and body.
Another interest of mine is the visual similarities among organic structures such as cells, plant life, and marine creatures. It evokes the idea that everything was designed and made by the same hand.
Because of its humble and versatile qualities paper is my preferred medium. Through the technique of paper cut I perceive the material as a symbol of transformation, it is as looking someone loosing or removing the parts that are not serving to be able to reveal the true self.
