• Querida Mami

    The Querida Mami solo exhibit was the culmination of artwork made in response to my mother's stories of growing up in Cuba. For the show I made a paper maché piñata, Panchita, to represent my mother and her gift to me, her stories, thoughts and feelings about her childhood. During the exhibit opening, we pulled the strings and her personal stories poured out. The stories were printed on paper that was previously pressure-printed and letterpressed with wood type. I also printed linoleum reduction prints of Panchita for the show and designed invitations which I letterpressed using polymer plates. Visit the website HERE.
