Por que soy Nopal/Because I am Nopal
The sculpture reclaims the slur “Nopal en la frente” (Nopal on the Forehead) symbolizing Mexican heritage and creating a landmark and memento.
This is a self portrait narrative of my journey from my birth in Mexico to my recent rebirth in Canada.
My Heart Pin
This art piece is part of series of wearable art that is part of my identity. I wear these pieces on special occasions to signify different aspects of my life. My heart Pin was created to show a tradition that has Aztec and Catholic roots.
