Four words to describe your process:

Mixed media  sculptural painting

Creative Process:

Painting through, over, and beyond photocollage is my way of bringing together ways of knowing and experiences, composed from disparate histories, symbols, images, metaphors… My motivation is the same in my Skeleton Boxes, Library Spirits, Muertos Lights and other mixed media works, bringing together cultural influences with respect and humor. Like using photos, maps, book pages, etc. in the collages underneath my paintings, I use found objects and different materials in the small sculptural pieces. All of my works keep a respect or a play with ideas of death, which opens towards a greater celebration of life and our shared humanity.
