Born in Mexico, and raised in Latin America, I have been working with Latinos since the mid-1980s, as an interviewer, social worker, participatory artist, teacher, and community activist. My work relies on the interests of the community with whom I am working, whether in a school, hospital, senior center, museum, art center, or jail.

Since 2005, I have partnered on a number of collaborative art projects with the McColl Center for Visual Art, the Bechtler Museum of Art, the Central Avenue Bilingual Preschool, the Shamrock Senior Center, and the Mecklenburg County Central and North Jails in Charlotte. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Levine Museum of the New South, the Fredric Jameson Gallery (Duke University), the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Root Division (SF), Villa Victoria (Boston), NYC’s White Columns Gallery, and in Germany (Pasewalk) and England (Liverpool).

Currently, I am working with the Community School of the Arts (Charlotte) on a two-year grant to develop art, music, science, and literacy programs in two underserved neighborhoods.
