Honoring My Mexican American Heritage in Narrative, Cultural, & Mythological Scenes

     This ongoing, new body of work is about remembrances and speaks of my own experiences growing up biculturally and my appreciation for my Mexican cultural roots. 

TAMAL-ARTE An installation of over 3000 totomoxtle or corn husks individually made empty tamalitos. It is versatile and modular, creating cascading, flowing musical drapes. Depending on the desired effect, led lights and masks are optional. First shown at Somarts for Dia De Los Muertos in San Francisco, 2018.
