Creative folks often ask me for advice when it comes to their own projects and most of what I have to share is drawn from my own experiences. Now, I want to take a big leap and create this Patreon to share my artistic process with a bigger audience.

I come from a family of storytellers with deep roots in Colorado and New Mexico. Facing familial violence and trauma, I photograph the landscapes and people that have shaped my identity. My pictures question the legacies of Spanish colonialism, Catholic patriarchy, Manifest Destiny and white-supremacy as well as their impact on my family and the American southwest. The images make visual these lasting legacies in order to deconstruct dominant culture and facilitate intergenerational healing.



Learn from my mistakes and successes as I create limited-edition art objects, original photographs and work toward publishing my first mass trade publication in 2021.
I post here once a week and the most recent 6 months of posts are always free to everyone.


I explore the nuances of my relationship with my father in my current visual art project, One Man’s Body. The project will take me approximately 3 more years to complete and a lot of resources.

This is why I’m turning to Patreon.
The first $275 pledged here on Patreon will go directly toward funding the cost of the artist studio I desperately need as my project enters it's final two years.  I will be able to focus an astounding amount of energy on my art with that expense covered! And you can help me out for as little as a dollar a month. It’s awesome!

So what is Patreon? Patreon is a micro-funding platform where supporters of the arts can support artists like me. Think Kickstarter but in smaller amounts and pledged monthly. In exchange you get access to all kinds of cool perks! Like...

My behind-the-scenes Artist's Process Archive when you pledge $5/month! It's like a weekly blog (every Thursday) and the most recent 6 months are always free. I want to give you insight into the all aspects of my process, from project development, processing, printing, editing, presentation, media and more.

I was mentored by photographer and Guggenheim Fellow, McNair Evans, once each week during the first two years of my project. A lot of what I shared in my Artist's Process Archive during that time is sourced from my direct experience with McNair. 

Check out the full list of perks to the right for details. Just pick an amount you’d like to spend each month and in return you gain access to sweet and inspiring patron-exclusive content. You can change or cancel your support at any time, and you’ll only be charged once a month at the set amount you choose to give.

Thanks! I really appreciate you!
