Artist Statement

Raised in the Ledbetter neighborhood in West Dallas, I found the inspiration of the industrial landscape and its inhabitants to be the catalyst for my work. Reflecting my interest in the peoples and the mythologies accompanying them, I create commentary using old hand methods such as woodcuts in the tradition of José Guadalupe Posada to give voice to current events and highlight the intersections of race, class, and gender. My works are best described as deceptively calm but interlaced with coraje.
