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. The photographs I have submitted 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.
