I am a Colombian-American mix media sculptor and installation artist interested in geopolitical issues of violence and human suffering. My inspiration comes from observations of the hypocrisy that exists between the rhetoric of human life value and the violent behavior of humanity striving to engage the audience visually but also morally and philosophically. I have a solid record of solo, juried and group exhibitions as well as local and international recognition. I graduated with a BFA in sculpture from TCU, an MFA from TWU. Currently, I am the coordinator of Fort Worth Art Collective and board member of Art Room.
