My family came from San Luis Potosi in the mountains of Central Mexico. Their village was Named “El Tanque de Dolores” which built in the ruins of a Hacienda. They came for a better life in the united states. I grew up working in the fields as a teenager and up to my early twenties. We would leave school early may for the planting season and return to the valley around September or October, depending on the season lasted. There were times he had to hide from the school buses because we were not supposed to be working. Growing up as a migrant worker, I was raised up continually using my hands to dig the ground harvesting or fixing broken machinery to keep the work going. With art, I can continue working with my hands to create and experiment in many ways. My work is inspired by Mexican migrant culture, the long-standing relationship between the United States and Mexico, and the use of the migrant body.
