What is the essence of your life as a border artist?

“The essence of my life as a border artist takes me to fluctuate between both sides and look for inspiration and opportunities wherever it catches my attention and interest: the Mexican side definitely gives me some things the American one doesn’t and vice versa. The beauty of living and working in this area is that you are confronted to two opposite ways of thinking and this certainly enriches the way you perceive things.”
