Home Making Strategies



I encountered a homeless man on the street that had a cat by his side, and I felt this was his way of feeling at home although he was in a public space. I connect this situation with the one on the article “When A Budget Motel Room Is Home, There’s Little Room for Childhood” in which a woman called Karen was living with her son at the Golden Star Inn Motel, and used stuffed animals to decorate the room to make the motel a more livable place for her son. Those stuffed animals represent the same for me as this man’s cat.

I am an international student from Venezuela that desires to communicate with the world around me visually. I hope that I can become a part of the global conversation where I can tell stories that are untold. With a background in business and languages, I have experienced how different fields will always connect at some points, and I aspire to reinforce that connection in my work. I believe that there is not one pure aesthetic, and therefore I have chosen to collaborate and learn from those around me to every day grow as an artist.
