Las plantas y mi vida
iPhone 11 Pro Max Camera (Photograph)
This picture is intended to demonstrate how plants are constantly a part of my life and in my home and how I have a passion for soccer and video games.

This piece was to express the same levels of stress that student faces are also what teachers themselves face due to school work.
This artwork is centered around feelings of triumph in juxtaposed scenarios.The image displaying newspaper and various objects signifies the chaos and the image featuring my shadow depicts almost a calm after the storm.
Enveloped by fear, Reach for the light
When you feel as if your back is pressed up against a wall, or your subconscious is drowned out by your insecurities to the point where you can't think straight, you have to find the strength within yourself to push through it. If you can't, and all hope is lost, don't be afraid to reach for the light. Besides, when surrounded by darkness, the light is all you can see.

In this portrait, a student is portrayed looking outside her window during a stressful day of online school. The overwhelming emotions of being trapped during a pandemic both physically and metaphorically may make it seem as if the world is closing in on one’s self. Despite the plants and the student being the only two living organisms present in the image, they both live very contrasting lives from one another while still having in common the idea of feeling and being trapped.
This artwork is about my experience in reaching out for information about my roots and “Latinidad” during the time of COVID-19, through connecting with my mother more.
Self portrait that conveys the incomplete self. The figure is clear yet unidentifiable. She embodies the version of oneself that’s been forced into the shadows, but despite being the one behind the veil, she is not the one trapped.
Personally i wanted to find a way to convey a sense of emotion in this photograph and show a feeling that you should be cautious around this person and how unpredictable people can be. Whether this person is feeling angry, bitter, depressed, alone, sad, it can be all those things but none of those things too.
Hope in the Darkness
This photograph demonstrates that there is still light or hope in the darkness.
