    This silent video is a compilation of the animations I worked on for the 2014 Senior Art Exhibition: Wonderment, at Pepperdine University. Here's a bit from my artist statement from the show to give you an idea where I'm coming from: Venturing into animation has been the most frightening and wonderful decision I have made so far as an artist. I chose to employ this medium by using some of my muses: characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s the Hobbit and its film adaptations, in the prevalent style of Alex Hirsch’s cartoon, Gravity Falls. I loved working on this project as a direct response of being inspired by a fantastic world or character. Tolkien's work – and by extension Peter Jackson's films – have given me the basis for reinterpreting characters visually, and perhaps behaviorally as well. I chose these subjects in order to explore expression and visual storytelling, as well as to bring some of my favorite characters to life. This is also an invitation for viewers to discover on their own what Tolkien's world is all about, or look into the artistic style of Gravity Falls. In the meantime, lots more to learn. Hope you enjoy!

      This video was created for my senior exhibition at Southeastern Louisiana University. Hija y Madre is an installation that explores memories between a mother and her daughter through a diptych format. Some of the narratives are comical while others are sensitive. Each side of the diptychs play simultaneously, each a montage of accounts from the mother and daughter that reflect on events that shaped their biographies. The video explores the search for identity through images coming from interviews of the mother and daughter, memories portrayed through photos and home videos, and images and sounds from nature and their surrounding environments. In both of the accounts from the mother and daughter, the narratives are connected together through the passing down of Hispanic conventions but are divided by the change of location and time. Using a range of visual vocabularies, Hija y Madre moves beyond nostalgic and sometime repressed memories into a space of quiet contemplation, where resilience creates a potential for transformation and discovery of identity.
