Born in Mexico, my art and creative practice has always been inspired by my culture and environment. Recently my focus has been on hand drawn mandalas, and I also advocate on behalf of animals. With a concentration on sterilizing street dogs my rescue organization has achieved over 1,200 sterilizations in just over 2 years.

Pandemic Best Friends
(Mejores Amigos durante la Pandemia)

During the pandemic in Canada, animal rescues saw an increase in adoptions whereas shelters in Mexico filled to capacity. This participatory performance unites Corner Brook and Valle de Bravo, Mexico in a live-streamed international dog walk highlighting the paradoxical relationship these two cultures have with “man’s best friend”.
