“As a Latina artist and high school art teacher, my creative journey is a vibrant exploration of colorful expressions and cultural heritage. Drawing is my anchor and and teaching is a calling to guide students toward self-expression and individuality. I strive to bring out the best in each student, fostering confidence and authenticity in their creations.

The influence of ethnic folk art is a driving force in my work, paying homage the rich traditions of my multi-cultural, Mexican-American heritage. My mission is to empower the next generation of artists to navigate their artistic journeys with pride, embracing the myriad colors of their identity within the high school art studio and beyond.”
