Profile Information

About Me:
Mestiza in the age of wisdom...

"I was the only woman fooling around with a camera in the streets and all the reporters laughed at me. So I became a fighter."-Lola Alvarez Bravo

Born in the corazon of East L.A. I was delivered at the Japanese Hospital in Boyle Heights, an institution that is now only written history. I currently reside in Northern California.
I am a self-taught artist. My classrooms were the various elements of urban life: concrete, vibrant colors, sounds from a place I was growing to love. Mexico was brought to me. Surrounded by calla lillies, cactus and sunflowers. My neighbor Rafael's rooster was my alarm clock. Trio Los Panchos played the sound track. Sundays breakfast was menudo and freshly made tortillas from the local tortilleria on Whittier Blvd.
My heroes are the courageous street artists of Mexico. My body of work includes assemblage, found object art, jewelry, paper mache, doll making, painting and photography. I am also the author of a newly published childrens book titled "Chiqui talks to Grandma"
My work is a a humble way of keeping our traditions, history and vision alive.

this is my new blog site, account has been terminated.

In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.

We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops.

For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.

To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US:
In Mexico:

Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!
