Curanderas y Herbolarias 2021-2023

These paintings depict divine women showing strength, wisdom and beauty. Each painting  has a  golden and silver glitter element, where in many cultures,  like the Aztec, Mayan and Inca, gold is a symbol of power, divinity and immortality.

As I grow older into my artistic journey, acknowledging indigenous practices, reclaiming history and  passing into new generations is important as a mother and educator.

Women through history, had inherit herbal knowledge, plant identification to cure coughs, fevers and help other women with childbirth.

Often times, a ritual was performed to free the spirit from evil by spitting water, brewing herbs and chanting around the possessed body.  To connect with spirit, I attend Temazcal ceremonies on a regular basis.
