I am a multidisciplinary artist creating work that encourages a phenomenological experience by using unconventional technologies. I use visual and audio installations as a way to give new meaning to familiar objects.  Through the use of non-narrative printmaking, expressive videos and sound recordings, my installations are created with site-specific spatial history in mind. Through a process of collecting lived experiences and spatial history, I capture my or the local community's view of a space.  I am inspired by non-conformity, my upbringing in Texas/Mexico border, and analog media.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
