Mi obra artística trata temas de identidad, transformación, y fortalecimiento. La mayoria de los conceptos e imagenes fueron inspirados por las culturas indigenas de Anahuak y los libros antiguos conocidos como "codices," la cultura Mexicana, y la historia de Mexicanos en los Estados Unidos Americanos.
Los imagenes arriba enlazan a series distintas de mi obra artística.
