"You forget young girl that in pain there is also beauty"
Nana Hilaria, main character of my story La Curandera.
What is your dream project?
At this moment, to be able to take to the world my new book of stories and my novel. Once I can do this, I can probably dream of new projects. I have much to give yet!
Would you share with us what inspires you and your art?
All my life I have felt a special fascination with witches and mythology at a world level, however, as the years passed and the mystical cultural spectrum offered by Mexican indigenous peoples I began to fall in love with it. I fell in love with their stories, their cosmogonies and the form they had to understand and feel these issues in particular. Basically, magic inspires me in any of its forms, the power of women to heal and heal others and the stories that pass from generation to generation filling our ears and hearts with folklore.
If you weren’t making art, what do you think you would you be doing now?
Probably dying of resentment and boredom behind a desk watching other people realize their own dreams as I watched my life go by.
What artwork are you excited to work on next?
My new collection of stories about mestizo witches. There are thirteen long unpublished stories that I have not shown anyone! I've been working on them for two years and I'll finally be able to bring them to light.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given as an artist?
Believe in yourself, even if no one else does. Fall in love with what you do. If you love what you do that emotion will flow back and forth to other people. Do not doubt your ability, just learn from your mistakes.
