This new mini suite of prints, FOOD IS LOVE, celebrates my love for cooking for my loved ones, preparing plant-based foods using ingredients that Earth Mother gifts to us. In late 2021, I worked on various art pieces about my ancestral relationship to food. Since I was a kid, I loved to prepare foods in the kitchen. 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 culture I had grown up with. I saw myself as a culture keeper of food wisdom. 


My friends and family who have tasted my food over the years will tell you that it’s been an amazing and delightful experience. I pour my love into my food. I view food as a pathway for healing. I try to connect with each ingredient. 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.  I feel that 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!
