Artist's Statement
I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. Life experiences, environmental justice, and spirituality are my present creative inspirations. I am a poet-artist and educator by vocation. Each path roots my work ethic and vision to humanity. My poetry is forged from the creative unconscious, deep imagery and wildness poetically experienced through association. My visual art process is nurtured in a place of patient observation and expounds the literary process. I appreciate the world for its contradictions, while honoring the overlooked. Creating connections between environment and the modern world is the foundation of my work, I achieve this through encouraging the community voices of men and women under-represented in politics and literature. My work is rooted in community, I have chosen to foster change, to encourage a conversation on sustainability and connectivity, and to bring our lives closer together through community, expression, and art.
