I am a recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a painting degree, beginning to work as a professional artist. I currently have a residency through Juxtaposition Arts in Minneapolis which involves teaching painting to 14-18 year olds, as well as working as an artist assistant for Rabbit Bandini and doing freelance graphic design and illustration. I was born in Mexico City and moved to Minneapolis when I was 5 years old. I speak English, mostly fluent in Spanish, and beginning Italian. I really enjoy reading, cooking and exploring new places.
