About

Color Enthusiast. Latina/Choctaw Feminist Bisexual.

I was born during a snowstorm in Texas. As a child I was always quietly creating little books and pictures of cats and rainbows. My first commissions were drawings of unicorns for other third graders. Studying both Lisa Frank and art history, I was always drawn to bright sunny colors with no regard for reality. One teacher said I would have been a fauvist. Now my obsessions are the same as they ever were: color, music, dreams, and wonder. I currently reside in Portland, OR with my husband, one tiny pup, and heaps of plants.

I create modern artwork that is unapologetically female. Asserting that feminine is not inherently less. Claiming space for femininity through color, shape, and expression without holding back. I have a lot of feelings, but that does not mean I am difficult; the color pink is not inherently saccharine. I want to be free to roam around unrestricted by arbitrary boundaries in life and in my work. I try to instill an audacious freedom in my art by often painting with my hands instead of brushes and using bright fanciful colors. My work has often been described as magic, and I can’t imagine a higher compliment than that.
