It started; at my Tia Teresa's where I got TLC.. .Mama Maria always off to work; nil Jefe appeared three years later. Thank you tio Chayo; for singing in the shower, your books, tools, classic cars, musical instruments and crooked walk.

Statement:

I reference a Living Native Cultural Legacy of Abya Yala (SICIN) and incorporate the modern world. I draw what I see, and change it with imagination by acting as a prism that reflects beautiful rainbow colors.
