My self-summary
The offspring of a Mexican mother & Peruvian father...a romantic, a dreamer & doer, value intellect & a great sense of humor {quip} - honesty - true expression, art appreciator, collector of eclectic music, very much into independent & foreign film, espresso, turkish & craft coffee {I'll do Pilon, Café Bustelo, Illy, Lavazza in a percolator, Mehmet Efendi traditional Turk Kahvesi style or intelligentsia, stump town, blue bottle as a pour over} open to more, {forgive this run on sentence}...and although hooked I manage to do Yerba Mate to balance it out and cleanse... Big on red wine {Bordeaux, Grenache, Trapiche, Malbec, Shiraz-Syrah, Mouvèdre, Sangiovese, Caménère is my palate} pisco, cognac, rum & whiskey also an explorer of new cuisine...

I try to be a creative individual, a painter / artist {modern abstract-geometric} teacher {Figure Drawing Atelier } / digital sculptor {looking to explore hands on sculpture as a modality of expression translating my work into 3dimensional form with and without the aid 3D modeling Software} ...I try to be as optimistic as possible... Recently took up interest in boxing & yoga simultaneously for good physical balance...however I'm not boxing just practice with a friend that does.
What I’m doing with my life
Returning to school to ultimately receive my masters after being an art teacher (private schools & working with at risk gang youth in Cypress Park) and illustrator/designer in the commercial/ad industry in Los Angeles. I paint and I'm currently developing a new body work in other mediums & techniques ie: sculptural and some older & newer technologies... showing in galleries in NY and abroad is a goal.
Enjoying life while I have it. Carpe Diem.

I can eat meat too but I try to limit it.... Vegetarian/ Vegan Cuisine {all of it}- Peruvian {saltado de pollo, ceviche, papa Rellenas, pescado a lo macho y mas!} - Indian {curries, daal, poori, chole, tika chicken masala, tandoori} but honestly I think I eat more Indian than anyone I know and save you from listing more...- Thai {noodles Pad See Yew, Pad Woon Sen, bok choy all day... & Spicy soups} - Vietnamese noodles BUN & PHO } - Mexican {Tacos - Mariscos, enchiladas } - Mediterranean {kabobs-hummus-mutabal } are probably my favorites but I eat more than that... I tend to only eat red meat once every few months and chicken / fish more often... I go weeks solely eating Vegetarian and really enjoy well prepared Vegan. It's just about eating consciously and simply weekly and treating one self to a decadent meal for special occasions or weekends. I cook for myself plenty and if you're worthy perhaps I'll whip up a dish for you too. You might even enjoy it.
The six things I could never do without
ART / Music / Love / Incense / Wine / tools {laptop-PAINT brushes}
I spend a lot of time thinking about
new directions in my artwork / Design / new Music / how to improve quality of life / what's really up with Chemtrails and exactly whats being sprayed / Geo-Engineering / sustainable energy / advancements in science and technology /Human Rights abuses in all countries including the US / record collecting / how I wish i had more time for catching up on books added to the cue / keeping a peaceful mind / eating consciously / Sumerian-Dogon-Anazazi-Hindu-Mayan scriptures|glyphs pertaining to our creation... Ancient civilization's technology.
On a typical Friday night I am
listening to a good musical performance / at an art gallery opening experiencing the new/ at a cafe working on designs / wine bar /independant theatre / cultural event / out door music festival / roaming the city.... I'm always open to new ideas and seeing where the night takes me.
You should message me if
*enjoys ART shows / galleries / museums and CULTURAL events, enjoy wine bars, good drinks, eclectic taste in music / new beats / live music / indie bands / are fashionable or care about your appearance {good taste doesn't mean cheap or expensive} / indie-foreign film / documentary watcher / has her ear to the city / adventurous / intelligent / reads / doesn't let her life revolve around tv shows / likes bars & lounges over clubs... Club venues can be cool depending on who is spinning and if there is a live band playing... I'm not into flashy top 40's bottle service clubs etc....
*You don't have to like It all, hopefully some of this resonates with you. Oh and excuse the overly articulate rant but it definitely helps narrow the spectrum down...
