My mami named me Zitlali Yunuhem, the Aztec name for Star Princess. Born in Mexico. Raised in Corpus Christi, TX (w00t w00t Selena) and later, the suburbs of Chicago. My surroundings help shape my cultural identity as a brown womxn.

My work invokes the visual language of my people through the use of color, shape and material choice. I explore my cultural identity through a contemporary, urban, lovingly conscious lens.

Como muxer inmigrante, mi arte sirve como un acto de amor y resistencia para Pachamama y mis Antepasados.

Graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
