Although now a resident of San Pedro, the artist also drew from her experience as an immigrant who discovered the rich cultural tapestry of San Pedro. The artwork, like neighborhood has diverse elements and many layers.
“I want to express the warm Southern California lifestyle, playful and diverse climate, with all the different cultures connecting through community activities, traveling and creativity.”
