Papel Picado=Wycinanki

Inspired by my Roots:

My most recent work, my illustrations of ceremony and my life, is inspired by my Mexican-Mexica and Polish Ancestry, specifically Tejana artist, Carmen Lomos Garza and Polish artist, Berenika Kowalska Obrzedy. Both are artist who work in illustrations and cut paper, in Polish it is Wycinanki(Wee-shi-naki) and in Español Papel Picado.

My work is a reflection of my family and friends, ceremony and celebration. It reminds me of times I felt love and community. I feel this in the work of Garza and Obrzedy.
