​​​​Growing up in Panama there were no art museums. Instead, my native visual environment  is hand painted signage with imagery created by non-academically taught artists. These can be found in the Spanish speaking portions of the Americas, including San Antonio where I have lived since 1988. I love the vernacular signage: their odd color combinations, strange perspective and wild shifts in scale. I adopt these qualities in my own work morphing the images into new and personal combinations.  For the past twenty years my work has explored the painting style of signage with imagery on the walls of shops (tiendas) such as beauty parlors, hardware stores, butcher shops and auto repair shops.
