I will be working on a painting addressing the gentrification of Puerto Rico.
I am a queer, Puerto Rican, artist, social worker (MSW), poet, performer, and author who was raised in Hartford, CT. After years of working in the research field, I leapt into my passion for art full-time in 2016. My work explores the themes of identities, our emotional resonance as humans, the medicine in our stories, and death as a metaphor for change. Recognized as the first Hartford Iron Poet champion and a 100 Women of Color honoree, I’ve chosen to dedicate my life to using the arts as my form of social work.
