Hi! I am a screen printer in Albuquerque, NM! I use water-based inks on fabric and paper and have been screen printing since 2012. My current designs are based on my fascination with music and nature. I also think it's important to represent BIPOC, which is why I'm only using people of color to model. Growing up I never saw models that looked like me and I struggled with finding relatable figures in the media and advertising.

What does a feminist economy mean to you?
A feminist economy is one that supports people without gender bias- my work shouldn’t be questioned or subjected to “It’s good for a woman” and no one should be surprised to see a woman or feminine person in a cis male dominated field such as screen printing. This is the case with many fields of art or work across the board. My body has nothing to do with my abilities and I work hard at what I do.
How does your work uplift the community?
I think my work uplifts the community by providing a role model for other women and people of color. Si se puede! I remember the first time I met this latino/indigenous couple that owned an artisan shop in Denver, I was like truly excited. There was a wow factor and I definitely looked up to them.
