I have a passion for visuals and seeing the things hidden just below the surface. As an artist, I pride myself on my ability to see patterns and messages in visual interpretations of the world we live in. I enjoy deciphering, analyzing, and interpreting art, handwriting, photos, literature, movies, and anything that is manifested from someone's perspective of life. Oftentimes, our guides use visual codes to convey their messages, which is why I have been drawn to tarot readings. Through my spiritual journey, I have come to understand the language of the cards and can see in my mind's eye messages lifting up out of the spreads. Helping people find hope, inspiration, clarity, and guidance has become my passion.

My formal education was in art, graphic design, marketing, and English. I am currently exploring various spiritual teachings to answer questions that have been itching my brain since I was little: "what came before what I know and how was what I know shaped?" I grew up Christian devoid of Mexican influences (even though that is what we are) and constantly curious about ancient history and paleontology. Unfortunately, my mom, pastors, and private school teachers were unable to help me explore the ideas of dinosaurs, much less other philosophies and ways of life that came before Christianity. So for about 20 years, I kept my head down and walked the path I thought I was suppose to walk and found myself numb, disconnected, and lost.
The trees around me breathed life into me. The animals helped me feel again. Slowly, as I became ready, people started showing up in my life who helped guide me to enlightenment. I have witnessed the unexplainable and it has left me hungry for more! I am still on my journey, but my wish is to provide a light of hope on the path for those seeking the same.
I dabble in button making, stickers, resin, watercolor, clay sculpting, drawing, paper maché, junk journaling, and whatever speaks to me. You can find my art store and portfolio on my Art by Val page.
