Hola! First off, some childhood facts: growing up, my familia and I moved constantly up and down the California landscape, from the Santa Clarita Valley, to the San Joaquin Valley, then to the San Fernando Valley, and now currently between the San Gabriel and the Antelope Valleys. I grew up always being the new kid and never really having buddies except my siblings. #goteam

 

Also, I received my BA and MA from California State University, Northridge and my MFA from Florida State University in 2015. My work has been shown nationally in places such as the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, California, at Fountain Art Fair in Miami Beach, Florida and at Birdsong Nature Center in Thomasville, Georgia.

I am currently the lab technician, studio manager and an instructor at Xiem Clay Center in Pasadena, California. 

I enjoy a lot of solitary activities including, venturing out in the LA area (and beyond!), time outdoors with my family, hiking, jogging, and will soon get into learning how to play the vihuela, become a seamstress and learn another language:)

Thanks for visiting!
