Where are you from originally?

El Paso, Texas


How did you find out about Anderson Ranch Arts Center?

Through a presentation about the Ranch that Liz Ferrill gave at Rhode Island School of Design.


What is your favorite part about Anderson Ranch so far?

The cafe—I feel that’s where I interact the most with others.


What are you working on during your residency?

I am using the residency time to keep working on my investigation of the disappeared women from Mexico.


How would you describe your artistic practice?

I feel my artistic practice is not just about making work, but also about the extensive research I embark on before actually making the work.


What inspires you to create art?

Feeling the need to share my reality and making people aware of what goes on in the world.


How do you spend your time when not working in the studio?

Interacting in the cafe or taking a walk around the ranch.


How can we find you on social media and the web?
