I am a movement artist and activist. I was born into the Puerto Rican independence movement and have been active in US social movements from an early age. I worked for 30 years in the Northland poster Collective which provided art services and cultural organizing capacity to the labor movement and other causes. My art is developed in relationship with grassroots struggles. I write on matters of movement building and organizing strategies. I live with my family in Minnesota where I continue my work from my own store front studio.
