I am a visual artist born in Venezuela now living and working in Houston, Texas.
I started producing art as a self-taught artist and subsequently gained a BA in Fine Arts from Armando Reverón Art Institute in Caracas, Venezuela and went on to gain a MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design London, UK.
My art celebrates my cultural references but also confronts social injustices that are pertinent to me. By appropriating and contrasting patterns and ornaments seen in decorative objects and traditions of everyday life I denounce issues of gender, violence, race and class.
I have exhibited my work in the US and at International Art Fairs and Galleries.
