Artist Statement
This print is from a series of collages that celebrate Indigenous California and the coastal community of the Tongva. Watercolor paintings inspired by traditional marks and lines are combined with collage. The final product is an inkjet print of blended mediums, imagery, and eras making something that looks to the future, reclaiming a place real and fantastic.
