I'm thrilled to be part of the upcoming second annual Utah Indigenous Fashion Week scheduled for this Saturday, February 10, at Material Contemporary. The convergence of art, fashion, and culture is immensely meaningful to me, serving as a gateway to contribute and integrate into my new community.
My heartfelt gratitude goes out to the businesses and individuals who played a crucial role in bringing this event to life. A special thanks is extended to Colour Maisch and Jorge Rojas for their exceptional contributions.
I'm also eagerly anticipating the opportunity to exhibit a piece from my "Sacred Skins" collection: "The Lamb of God." This creation pays homage to my late father's Brazilian gaucho heritage and my Amazonian Guarani indigenous ancestry.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
