STATEMENT and BIO

STATEMENT

"My artworks are artistic reflections of my life and personal feelings as a Mexican woman, spiritual, emocional or intelectual."

I do different kinds of art as painting, collage, assemblage, altered art, mixed media, geometric art, art journals, ceramics, sculpture, gelli mono-prints, digital art, set designing and book illustration.

What really motivates me is the process of creation and experimentation and getting physically involved  in my works of art. I like doing ecologic art taking care of the environment and playing with my creativity.

Textures, transparencies, drippings or impastos express events in my life and mind as happiness, stress, sex, scars, tears or peace.

There are  always changes in my art the same as in my life.
