bio

"I am visual artist experimenting with new techniques and recycled elements to transform them into functional objects and wearable art. Most of my designs explore the roots of my Hispanic heritage. I have always been fascinated by how ancient cultures transformed organic elements into objects that lasted thousands of years".
