A visual artist with a writing problem, I draw, paint, design, and sketch the worlds and characters I imagine before putting them into words. My writing explores humanity and our collective journey through existence, knowing, and believing. My subject is the strange, and my lens is womanhood. I am interested in humankind's relationship to nature and in positively inflicting change. I believe in realization through repetition and shape my stories with responsibility and attention to that. I'm obsessed with quantum physics and our limited scope of reality and probe the subconscious for alternate solutions to expanding awareness. Lucidly avant-garde, I am attracted to the mathematics of circumstance and the results of poetic justice. My areas of interest include: psychopathology, philosophy, evolutionary mishaps, climate change, magic, folklore, love, spirituality, and sexuality. I believe in the re-enchantment of art in the remix culture. I have been called a hopeful existentialist, and my work has been called: "an emotional disco ball", "beautiful and grotesque", "playful and soothing", and "from another plane." I want to make a difference. A percentage of my profits from productions will start to go towards the Alzheimer's Association and the BCRF (Breast Cancer Research Foundation) starting in 2019. I am an immigrant. Born and raised in México, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua Capital, and Zacatecas, my plays are inherently Mexican without the obsession of identity, and explore the Frontera Aesthetic armed with the knowledge of my ancestors who have been border dwellers since the 1800s. A border-welder at heart, I am dedicated to unlocking the creative potential of the in-betweens.
