Born into the arms of a Mexican mother and a Dutch father on the island of Curaçao, I was introduced to the value of diversity since birth. Seeking for identities in the corners of the world, I have learned that the magnitude of our reality is comforting but also confronting. To be able to survive, you need to be able to change. My work is composed by intertwining the flow of existence with the waves of my restless mind. I find it important to play with the world around us in order to create new ways of looking, thinking, and behaving. I believe chaos and moments of uncertainty are essential because that’s when we learn to grow and change. With an obsession for color and the human experience, I take you on a surrealistic journey that doesn’t mirror life, but instead, transforms life.

My work allows you to play with the boundaries of your body, question your surroundings, and reflect on modern conditions by giving you the freedom of movement and by embracing chaos. When pushing boundaries we need to be fearless and imaginative.
