Spanish culture and socialization is at the root of my artwork.  In Spain, everyday life is full of meaningful interactions with family, friends, neighbors, and even strangers.  Life is more or less communal. Being distant from such everyday experiences, my artwork has become a way linking with cultural roots and way of connecting with new and vast communities.
The main focus of my work involves participatory interactions with audiences and site-specific material production incorporating social and environmental aspects of my surroundings. I began my art career as a painter, but expanded my interest to fiber art, textiles, performance and costume design. I relate weaving to the process of mending and transforming as a result of experiencing art making through the body and mind. I find the process of intertwining materials together as an opportunity to build new connections and meanings with my sensory experiences. I called this process social weaving.
