STATEMENT

Born and raised in New York City, I have a strong passion for making and viewing art. Early in life, I learned about art not only from the museums, but also from the raw, primitive, folk qualities of art in the city, where I lived awash in the colors of different cultures. Fascinated with monoprint and intaglio techniques of printmaking, I produced a series of over 100 prints, while working with master printer Roni Henning for museums, galleries and publishers as well as individual artists. While living and working in Soho, New York, I became interested in experimental and radical art as well as feminist art. At this time, I also became involved in multicultural art organizations, such as Vistas Latinas and Coast to Coast: Women Artists of Color, and began curating and organizing exhibitions.

For the last thirty years, I have created and exhibited my art professionally and taught art classes for the University of New Mexico Valencia campus from 2000-2013. I especially enjoy teaching because it allows me to interact and learn from students from a wide range of cultures, languages, ages, and backgrounds. I view myself a cultural worker in my art and life. Because racism and sexism are such bone-crushing, spirit-deadening oppressions, it is vital that my voice and the voices of my compañas have the authority to express our experiences without being defined by others.

At this time in history, we also need to free our minds and create a world with more choices and more dimensions. How can we expand our consciousness for creating our world with more possibilities for understanding each other as greater than black or white, good or evil, male or female, rich or poor. We as artists and cultural workers can show the way toward exploring complexity by putting our dreams into three dimensions for the rest of society. By doing so, we can retell the past, create the present, and envision the future.
