As an artist, my work is very personal and derived from my own ethnic and cultural experiences. I use many tools and materials that help me produce artwork from clay, metal, wood, resin, paint, digital capture and technology. With a vivid imagination, I have devoted many years into honing my skills to create original paintings, sculptures and digital work.

Afterwards her family returned to the South, near New Orleans, amongst the families making a living fishing the Gulf of Mexico.
