I am a Mexican-American artist heavily influenced by my culture and traditions. I explore with vivid colors and natural expressions on my surfaces. My work draws emotional and sentimental value to the audience. I believe my heritage is rich in history, rich in family, rich in culture, and it should be shared with everyone who feels connected with it. My shadow boxes are inspired by Mexican folk nichos. They can be used as mini ofrendas on the celebration of Dia De Los Muertos. A picture of a loved one can be added in the box to pay tribute, remember, and honor them.
