I like to paint with acrylics. I paint Lady de Guadalupe because I see images of her everywhere. I love horses, and I would like to own a horse one day. I paint images of them often. I started painting two years ago when I was 17. I got inspired to paint when I started drawing on my clothes with marker. I have also created paintings of horses with the Colorado flag for the Art-O-Mat at the VSA Gallery.

VSA Colorado/Access Gallery (VSA) is a community-based nonprofit organization located in the Art District on Santa Fe in Denver, Colorado. VSA engages the community by opening doors to creative and educational opportunities for young people with disabilities to access and experience the arts. Individuals in the ArtWorks program gain confidence, art skills and job skills. With 70% of people with disabilities unemployed and many living at or below the poverty level, the ArtWorks program helps change the economic equation for the participating artists. ArtWorks artists can be commissioned to create a variety of original works.
