"I am a visual artist who grew up in the Mennonite fields of the state of Chihuahua with studies in modern art in Canada, which has led me to glimpse many realities and needs in our society, especially in my Mennonite community. I greatly appreciate and value the traditions of my ancestors, those who arrived a hundred years ago on trains with nothing but tractors and cattle.In search of an artistic expression that would represent my community, I rediscovered myself as a child, enjoying the coloring books that my grandmother made for us. , and that they gave us every Christmas. Then, I understood why ceramics called me so much, even more than painting; it was the need to create an object that was not only aesthetic but utilitarian, which at the same time expressed our lifestyle and the beautiful surroundings of the fields.

I like to reflect on where we come from and where we are going, as individuals and as a society. It is on these thoughts that I base my conceptual ceramic pieces, moving away from the utilitarian to express my ideas to an international audience"
