February 22, 2019 | Austin American-Statesman
I have lived in Texas since emigrating from El Salvador eighteen years ago. I am a chemical engineer by trade, but I have been designing on the side for the past three years. Design has provided an outlet of artistic expression and catharsis from the rigid world of corporate engineering.
My collection represents Austin–a city that has amplified my passion for design. Austin is a culturally diverse city with a quirky attitude. This is reflected in my designs of recycled materials and eclectic patterns. I am in constant search of unique textiles to incorporate into feminine, yet empowering designs that reflect the energy of Austin as it continues to grow as a mecca for technology, creativity, and innovation.
