Artist Statement As a first-generation Salvadoran, my work is based in healing and representation. This visibility is necessary due to the ancestral knowledge lost with migration. There is a profound need to own our narrative and document our history. I see my work as visible symbols of empowerment. My mediums range from gifs, video, poetry, zines and workshops.
