Born and raised in Culiacan, Sinaloa , Mexico, I moved from Mexico to the United States in 1999.
My interest in studying the behaviour of humans began when I taught literacy to children and adolescents at the Culiacan reformatory centre, which was before I moved to the USA.
In California, I provided psychotherapist services to various age groups, non-profit institutes, schools and counselling centers. This led me to wonder "Do we exist to experience pain and suffering in order to gain the pleasure of existence?"
In order to seek an answer to this question, my art practice explores the language of materiality. Materials speak a mute language. This silence allows me to understand the answer to this suffering in human existence.
