I have been exploring the concept of my location and my status as a non-citizen in the United States in different iterations through my work. I use symbolism about my heritage and other explorations of power, socio-political statements, minimal sculptural work about boundaries, borders, and performance works. Navigating tensions of cultural identity and continuously questioning my assimilation through objects, my body, rituals, labor, endurance, discomfort, and humor is the core of my practice.

Her work has been exhibited at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Beacon Project Sacramento, SOMArts South of Market Cultural Center, the Manetti Shrem Museum's Third Thursday, Axis Gallery, The Latino Center of Art and Culture of Sacramento, the Art League of Lincoln, the L.H.

She has been a recipient of the Young Space Grant, the Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, the Hopkins Endowment for Studio Art Students, the Crocker Kingsley Art Award, and the Herb Alpert Scholarship for Emerging Young Artists, among others.
