Artist Statement

I’m a current emerging artist in printmaking based in Madison, Wisconsin I emphasize the constructs that make up the contemporary work that recontextualize the issues of migration with Mexico and Central America. My work speaks to the growing misrepresentation that the United States views migrants. As a first-generation Mexican American, I express my knowledge through printmaking acting on the social issues that deal with racial, political, and environmental problems.
