Flor de Miel Media houses my films and installations created over the last 25 years, and, reflects my unique life experience in ways to connect to common experiences among people. Through art, I attempt to better understand the world around me. I feel fortunate that after 25 years of this creative journey, I am lucky to have so many supporters, collectors, and contributors making this work possible. I have met so many amazing people who I want to thank, our interaction helped teach me to be a better artist, a better human being, to open myself to different viewpoints, to those mentors along the way who guided me to transform this big passionate mess of feelings and creative impulses by channeling to better learn my craft.’
