Where are you from?

Michoacan, Mexico, originally. I am currently living in Washington state.

 

What do you do?

I am an artist; I focus primarily on drawing.

 

How did you get started?

I have always loved drawing. It wasn’t until seventh grade that I began to look at the concept of drawing in a different light. I remember that I was looking at pictures on google images and I found a drawing of truck. I asked my dad if he thought I could draw it and he looked doubtful, so I decided to give it a shot just to prove to him that I could. It didn’t turn out bad, so I took it to school. After receiving some compliments, I realized maybe I should draw more things and practice my skills. It wasn’t long after that I realized art was my true passion.

 

What do you love most about what you do?

I love that I can put my innermost sentiments and ideas on a piece of paper and create something unique, something that will hopefully evoke emotions and inspiration in others.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?

I draw most of my inspiration from my surroundings, wherever it may be at the time. I like to observe and take in everything. I like to think of everything as a potential drawing, one that I can add my own little twist to. Once I find the one thing that ignites that spark, I get to work. Listening to music and lighting some candles puts me at peace while I draw, which enhances my work.

 

What are some tips for other people to follow your path?

Always create things that fulfill you. There is a difference between creating something because you have the skills to do it and creating something that comes from within you. Don’t be afraid to express yourself – authenticity goes a long way and will always set you apart. It doesn’t hurt to practice every day, too, as it will help you hone your skills.

 

Any favorite books, songs, podcasts, shows?

At the moment, I have two books that I absolutely love:

  • Todos Los Días son Nuestros by Catalina Aguilar Mastretta,
  • La Tregua by Mario Benedetti.
  • One of my favorite songs is definitely Quien Fuera by Silvio Rodriguez.

 

What is identity to you?

How you express yourself. It is how you decide to take everything you are and expose it to the world.
