I was born in 1979 in Mexico, I have lived in the U.S.A., Spain and now in Australia. Being exposed to technology in an exponential manner allowed me to witness the drastic alteration of our lifestyles and the sudden rise of our new cyber worlds and identities.

I have been producing art since 1999: exploring various themes such as sexuality, spirituality, our relationship with nature and death, constantly obsessed with the possibility of making visible the intangible, in this sense the re­sults fall in the intersection of figurative and abstract.

The majority of my work have been collages on paper for various reasons:  paper represents ancient cultures and for centuries now the triumph of our civilization, it is also a practical and simple material that enables the creation of images whilst more importantly consolidating time and space as a unique physical document.

I collect and recycle materials because these practices speak about the saturation and overconsumption representative of our times, all this paper and plastic will then shape figures and images that attempt to materialise this information overload, the homogenisation and convergence of world trends and the complexity of our emerging  status as internet mutants.

My most recent works are sculptures made from recycled plastic and are inspired by everyday people; the next step is to start giving the sculptures mechanised, robotic skeletons in an attempt to mimic the loops of everyday life.

I am also an experienced Art Director and currently producing feminist video art projects in collaboration with Sissy Reyes under the name of Purple Moustacho.
