objective since 1969 has been to create works of art that instill pride in our
Mexican American cultural and historical contributions to American society.
The Chicano movement inspired me to concentrate on our everyday lives based
on my memories and experiences in South Texas. I saw the need for art that would
elicit recognition and appreciation among Mexican Americans and at the same
time serve as a source of education for others not familiar with our culture.
