about

I am a wounded healer, Xicana artist and muralist, radical warrior woman, and revolutionary earth mama.  My work is a reflection of my values, which embodies a deep reverence for indigenous culture, the power of women, and a vision of a better future for the next generations.  I create as a way to affirm my culture, connect with my ancestors, educate my community, and honor our history, which would otherwise be lost.

My work is rooted in spirit, channeling ancient indigenous imagery, religious iconography, revolutionary struggles, and a community of cultural consciousness. Blending art as knowledge, knowledge as healing, I draw my inspiration from ancestral stories and the struggles and issues affecting my people, who have historically been oppressed.

Through my work, I hope to remind us of our original laws of interconnectedness with each other, the earth, and the cosmos so that we can reconnect to the land and our ancestors. As a socially conscious artist, I believe, it is my responsibility to articulate the struggles of my people and create environments where reflection, affirmation, and transformation can occur.

Q&A

What does a feminist economy mean to you?

Women have always been at the core of civilization and culture. Women being life givers have an inherent concern for the well-being of others. When women work together communities thrive. This was once a way of life for people living on earth. With the rise of patriarchy, inquisition, colonization, capitalism, and globalization women have lost their traditional roles as leaders and protectors of life. As the entire world is literally plagued by death brought on by corporate greed, it has become necessary for women to organize and mobilize if life in going to be sustained on this planet. When women come together real solutions to community issue can be resolved. Through my work as an artist with the knowledge of traditional plants and healing, I provide a way to educate, celebrate and affirm the feminine principle as sacred.
