Los Angeles, CA
My work takes on my lived experiences and family footage as a point of departure to play and reflect on my first gen Mexican Honduran upbringing, born and raised in southeast Los Angeles :)
I am a 90’s baby and 2000’s kid invested in ideas around capitalism, guilt, girlhood, and pop culture. My video and stained glass works play in storytelling - mixing in the mythos and aesthetics I grew up with around latinidad, sci-fi, spirituality, superstition, and humor. My work and I exist in a world that is ending very soon. I hope u enjoy!
