El Paso, TX
••• Se habla Español. Und Ich spreche ein bißchen Deutsch auch.
••• During college I took the basic courses in various different art disciplines yet I am employed as a teacher. It is my day job, a loved and enjoyable privilege reserved for few. Having a steady source of income allows me to exploit this small freedom that not all artists possess, the freedom to paint, choose my clients, select my deadlines, negotiate my price, choose my theme, develop technique and experiment freely without the continuous oppression of the art world itself; its critics, trends and politics.
It is a life of privilege albeit I am a chicana artist in the U.S.. My artwork will most likely reflect minor struggles, perhaps an average life, and an institutionalized point of view despite all the freedoms afforded to a middle class teacher.
In the end, I am my own worst enemy.
••• Most of the pieces here are for sale. I am also open for art shows, events and commissions. Rates will depend on various factors, so an e-mail inquiring information would not hurt and is very welcome.
