Trained as a painter, I switched to embroidery eight years ago after taking traditional embroidery classes at the Ukranian Art Museum in NYC. Embroidery felt so familiar to me. It's a perfect union of my Guatemalan and German heritage. Using threads as strokes or pixels to explore my subjects, I draw inspiration through personal experience, historical references and traditional textiles.
