I am a Queer, Latinx artist and designer based in Oklahoma City.
My interactive projects present creativity as a technology for liberation.
This is my studio website, where you can learn more about my ideas and my personal creative practice.
Practice Practice is a network of accessible resources for artists building balanced practices. We want to transform how artists imagine success in their creative practices.
Artists are often taught to prioritize production and commercial success over everything—including relationships, rest, and mental health. This expectation is harmful and unsustainable.
We envision creative practices working in harmony with other important aspects of life. We imagine a future in which artists are well-fed, well-rested, and grounded in community.
Drawing Radical Futures
Drawing Radical Futures is an interactive drawing exercise commissioned by the Oklahoma Contemporary Art Center for the 2023 ArtNow biennial exhibition. The exhibition, titled “ArtNow: The Soul is a Wanderer”, is based on the poem A Map to the Next World by Poet Laureate Joy Harjo. My drawing exercise guides visitors as they draw a map to their future.
Bad At Drawing Class BAD AT DRAWING are drawing classed that I teach with Dylan Cale Jones at the Oklahoma Contemporary Studio School. In B.A.D. Class we teach experimental drawing using Radical Drawing foundations: (1) Drawing is a verb! (2) Everyone can draw, and (3) Drawing is not “good” or “bad”.

Recent Drawings: Abundances
Abundances is a collection of drawings and collages created in 2022 and 2023. These drawings focus on fruit and flowers. I use paper scraps and pieces of previous drawings to create the different elements. The individual parts are created separately. Later they are assembled into dreamy still-life pieces.
