Graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in May 2017 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, emphasis in photography and book-making. The first of a large Hispanic/Mexican family to not only graduate college but explore the realm of the creative arts. Currently based in Chicago.
By constantly working with my hands in mechanical ways (that of film photography, etching, writing, and alternative processes) I feel fulfilled to share stories of the everyday mundane and familial. Trying to compel what I’ve seen and heard then making connections, drawing the lines, hearing my voice within it all.
Enjoying the process of new sets of work that come from developing rolls of film, having coffee with a friend, people watching in the park, listening to a new song, etc. I’ve been combining my photos, flatbed scans, and text to try to make sense of my life. With each new revision, book or photographic images, I try to give new context by shifting space, form, and placement.
