Abstract/Artist Statement

I love to explore and try new things. Growing up, I developed an interest in astronomy, geology, music, and art. I love just about any form of art from theater arts, and music, to drawing and painting. Though I have many hobbies and interests, art has always been my true passion. My hobbies aside from art are writing poetry, going out on my longboard throughout Stockton and taking photos.

I am Mexican-American, and many of my art pieces are greatly inspired by my cultural heritage and history. Since a young age, the celebration behind the Day of the Dead has always fascinated me. The meaning behind the holiday and the colors and decorations are beyond beautiful. Some of my favorite artists and inspirations growing up are Diego Rivera, José Guadalupe Posada, and Carlos Amorales. I was inspired by the way they told Mexico's history going all the way back to the Aztecs.

The thing I love about graphic design is that it allows me to combine all of my interests into one. It allows me to help clients see their dreams and visions come true. Living in a digital world where everyone has a phone and access to the internet there's no better way to teach people and help make a difference then by creating works of art that can be shared online.
