As a native to San Antonio, I enjoyed painting with my grandmother at a very young age. I received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from University of Texas at San Antonio in 2001. I have shown artwork in local art galleries in Downtown San Antonio as well as group exhibits in Austin and New York. I have donated artwork to local nonprofit organizations as well. I have been an art teacher for the last 17 years. I remain dedicated to making and exhibiting artwork. My recent work is made using oil paint, collage, and found objects
My work stems from the creative process of assemblage, collage, and painting. I use found objects as starting point to reintroduce them to the viewer through the use of color and form. My attempt is to present these objects in a new space that provokes reaction and beauty to the viewer.
