-“My intention is to give voice to the human condition. My vocabulary is the indigenous roots, my passion is social commentary and different realities. I speak of our environment from my perspective as Mexican, as woman; deepening in the feelings and emotions shared by all. Through textures, transparencies, atmosphere, I represent figurative images, constantly experimenting to achieve the desired image”.
