I was born in Colombia, S.A. and arrived in NY at the age of 3 with my mami, embracing I Love Lucy, game shows, pop music and old school Hollywood. Although my birth culture is sewn into the fabric of my everyday life, my American dream is still wrapped tightly around Frank Capra’s small town Utopia. The magic realism that permeates my birth country is reflected in the surreal landscapes I explore in a variety of media. The family of women who raised me continue to inspire me. This rich confluence of cultures has created a unique and ever evolving voice.
