“This portrait of Gloria Anzaldua was created using linocut on paper. Linocuts can be printed multiple times like a stamp. Anzaldua’s book “Borderlands: La Frontera – The New Mestiza” changed my life in profound ways. It has been more of a spiritual guide for me than traditional religious texts. I wanted to create small votive prints that would be personal objects that one could use in an altar or ofrenda.”
