Kansas City, KS
I am a Mexican American artist living in Kansas City, Kansas. I love drawing, painting in pointillism, and painting as much as possible. Painting helps me manage anxiety and stay calm and focused. When I am painting, I don’t have depression or suicidal thoughts. I’m just painting, and I feel good. I paint things that bring me hope. I paint things that are autobiographical; my family, my culture, and the things that would otherwise just live in my mind. I hope my paintings help others understand me and my unique perspective.
As I participate in Expressions, I will be very proud to show my children my art in a show. I love them very much and I want them to be proud of me.
