    ARTIST STATEMENT

    This text, by a Náhuatl Indian, defines what I do every day along my road through the world, under different stars.

    Instead of embroidered blouses, I do paintings.

    The only one difference.

    I embroider my blouses with two heads.
    During the night, one of my heads dreams of designs, draws colours or stitches,
    And during the day, my other head thinks about all other things that a woman has to do: to look after the animals, to cook, to make tortillas and also to embroider the blouse that I dreamed.
    One of the heads is for me and the other one is for my people.
