About the Artist
  1. Contento
  2. Solecito
  3. Calaca del Cielo
As a newer artist in Santa Cruz I feel fortunate to live in a place surrounded by art, music, history and creativity. This has fueled my passion for art over the past five years, which has grown since my first high school art class. As a graduate of California State University, Chico I found my self intrigued by our human anatomy. With a bachelors of science in Kinesiology and minor in Nutrition, I have studied all aspects of the human body and find that to be my inspiration. As a nutrition counselor at a local outreach program, fitness enthusiast, and artist, I engage my Mexican heritage and love of the human body to create a balanced lifestyle. 

Most of my art focuses on uniting Dia de los Muertos and the human skull. I draw inspiration from the Mexican culture and use bright colors to create a piece of art that tells a story. I hope to inspire those around me by incorporating the Santa Cruz lifestyle and my Mexican heritage. I enjoy making custom designs to fit any personality and to hope to inspire those in need of creativity.  Imagination is everything.
