I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I worked in the entertainment industry. Learning English in the US as an adult gave me a unique perspective on the language’s nuances. I employ video, performance and photography in the way the mass media does, using humor and wit to delve into issues of immigration, cultural stereotypes, identity and being bilingual. I received an MA from CSU Northridge and an MFA at CSU Long Beach. My works have been exhibited in private galleries and universities and in community exhibition venues in California, Missouri, Texas, Oregon, and Vermont; at the Mexican Consulate, the Spartanburg Art Museum, Torrance Art Museum, and Orange Coast College. My work has been collected by the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, and the National Immigration Law Center.
