My work naturally gravitates toward exploring my own identity and character. As an artist I seek to share my special experience with others and have my voice heard. Through my work I ask myself what I am proud of and where my worth lies as a mujer de color. I am proud of and my strength was born in my solidarity with the other mujeres in my life. The mujeres I was raised with, las luchadoras, the womxn I met in school, las ninas de la calle, las chicas fresas, they have given me life. These photographs are part of an ongoing and ever growing series based on the Womxn in my life who have shaped me to become the strong mujer I am today. This series is dedicated to the hardworking Womxn in my life who have continued to persevere through the struggle.
