Artist quotes: "My art is indigenous-Ancestral and social cut. The proposal I'm finally developing is an ancestral tribute. All that hidden memory, which for some reason is lost, I rescue it. Every proposal becomes autobiographical. I've looked inside of me to find myself. That land is where I grew up and has its story." "I just know that I give the best of me that I give everything I can and I have, I fight, I effort, someday everything will be worth it."
