As a queer, mixed-race artist, I often describe myself as existing in the ‘between’ spaces. While I feel an inherent connection to my ancestral Latin and indigenous roots, I recognize the privilege my racial and sexual ambiguity has, at times, granted me. As someone who straddles demographics, I often find myself observing from the periphery. My art is informed by these diverse experiences. Creating expressionist works, I use intuitive motions to unify bold color palettes and soft shapes, employing an abstract lens to explore themes of gender presentation, vulnerability and universal connectivity.
