I love to cook and prepare plant based meals for my loved ones using ingredients that Earth Mother gifts to us. This new body of artworks, Kitchen Still Lifes, celebrates my love for cooking and the joy that is alive in my kitchen.

Since I was a kid, I loved to cook and bake for my family. As I grew and left home for college, I took my family’s recipes with me and created new ones that were a hybrid of my Peruvian culture and the Mexican and Asian cultures I had grown up with. I saw myself as a culture keeper of food wisdom. 

I love showing care for others by preparing amazing dishes. I love tasting food and then using my taste buds to identify the elements in a dish, so that I can later replicate it with my own approach. I love to know where the seeds, spices and vegetables come from. I try to imagine what it was like for ancestors to come up with unique dishes that I get to recreate today.  

Food is a pathway for healing. Particular ingredients awaken parts of our bodies that allow us to remember and heal. I like to think of myself as a messenger for those food elements that I combine to create intense mouth pleasure!
