Visual Artist

United States

Short Bio:

I was born in Queens, NY. I spent my childhood living abroad in Panama. The vibrant colors and festive atmosphere of the country became a deep rooted inspiration. I studied in Passaic County Technical Institute under the Advertising Art & Design program. Then obtained Associate’s Degree in Fine Arts at Bergen Community College. 

Currently, I live in Sussex County NJ where the farmlands and mountain ranges provide comfort and inspiration for my soul.

Artist Statement

I’m fascinated by the process of blending Biblical elements with cartoons-- while deconstructing the result with African or Mola textiles. With this filter, I discover Evangelism in internet culture. I pursue a central theme, that Jesus Christ came to save all of our tribes.
