An American Artist
My mother is from Mexico and my father, from Naples. I feel very inspired by folk craft and medicine of Mexico along with textiles and tribal jewelry of Old World Europe. What I appreciate the most about being connected with my culture is that my art feels genuine. . .its in my DNA..regardless of technique, influence from my ancestors presents itself. I have been walking in the streets of old towns in Mexico and seen century old embellishments on buildings that strongly resemble artwork I had been creating on my own, it's an engaging and validating feeling.
