Coming Home

12 NYC & HTX Based Artists Come Together in Houston, TX

On August 25th 2017, I had the immense joy to be part of "Home and Away" Show at the Gallery of Hardy & Nance Studios in Houston, TX. It was the first time I showed my art in public! Despite the imminent threat of Hurricane Harvey, the collaborative work of 12 emerging artists shone through the darkest storm clouds. A variety of mediums such as photography, painting, embroidery, video, jewelry were on display. All were representations of the artist's personal exploration of home and complexity of that relationship. Click here for the official press release. Check out the event pics and video below!

Most profound THANK YOU to Suzy Villarruel for having the vision and execution to bring the show to life. She believed in our craft, our potential, inspired each one of us and made it all happen. Te quiero mucho, amiga!

Mucho love to all the artists who contributed their immense talents and support:

Forever grateful for the support from our wonderful sponsors: Oriana V. Garcia, Claudia Vasquez, Buffalo Bayou Brewing, Deep Eddy Vodka, Red Bull, and Topo Chico. 

Additional thank you to my parents and family for being profoundly supportive and sweet;  Maria Inez for her creative vision and kind heart. Thank you everyone who attended!
