"Paradoja del arte, vía carnal que te transporta de forma directa al mundo de lo inmaterial; Hago arte para elevar la carne y darle paso al espíritu para caminar.


El arte es mi grito sublime para limpiar y curar el alma, a través de la imagen "hablo" lo que no se me hace posible articular.

Hago arte porque nací con dicha responsabilidad sobre los hombros.
Hago arte por que nací negra, mujer y caribeña; la lucha de crecer negándome a ser absorbida por la anglo-normativa me obligó a crecer fuerte, rebelde y alborotada.


En ocasiones el coraje y la rebeldía precisan de un verbo silente que les exprese.
Mi arte es un silencio que no calla; dicen que una imagen habla más que mil palabras... observa".


"Paradox of art, carnal road that takes you directly to the world of immaterial;I make art to raise the flesh and give the spirit way to walk.

Art is my sublime cry to cleanse and heal the soul. Through the image "I speak" what I find impossible to articulate.

I do art because I was born with that responsibility over my shoulders.
I make art because I was born black, woman and caribbean; the struggle to grow refusing to be absorbed by the anglo normative forced me to grow strong, rebellious and unruly.

Sometimes the courage and rebelliousness need a silent verb to express them.
My art is a silence that does not stay quiet; They say a picture speaks a thousand words ... watch ".
