A cultural symbol and the intensity of heat in South Texas are part of my borderland experience. I was born and raised in Laredo, Texas and although I live in San Antonio now, Laredo and my culture are still an integral slice of my work.

I am drawn to a variety of discarded materials, intense colors and designs that reflect these experiences. And in these layered abstractions, I see a need for documentation of the changes in our environment, and how interconnected those changes are presented socially.
