My multicultural upbringing and life as a dancer have led me to dream of capturing movement, time, sound, and memory in clay. While inscribing hieroglyphs, I imagine I am breathing life into a mysterious past and lifting the veil between myself and the original scribes who wrote the same words centuries before. I strive to create a piece where movement, sound, and culture merge into a balanced whole, and ancient knowledge can be reborn through a new vision in the present. Whether the piece ends up with an overt indigenous identity or a simpler essence of motifs, I hope to infuse my work with the mysterious playfulness of my Mayan ancestors.
