What you'll do

I will receive you in my art studio mezcal in hand. Together we will explore the gallery space that features rotating expos by local female artists, and carry on behind the scenes into my work space. Live Mexico's Mural Renaissance from the inside out! You will see sketches and the development process of various murales of mine that you can find in the city. See how I work, my inspirations, and most exciting- you will leave with your very own piece of art- your portrait! At the close of our tour I will walk you across the Monumento de la Revolucíon passing the tombs of the revolutionaries, completing our tour at the doorstep of Che Guevara's previous home where the Cuban Revolution was planned leaving the neighborhood with an ever present bohemian spirit! And of course I will leave you with many recommendations of where to eat in this exciting part of town.

Where you'll be

Steps away from the tomb of Pancho Villa in the Monumento a la Revolucíon, in the historic beatnik Colonia of La Tabacalera I invite you into my art studio for an intimate visit. La Tabacalera is a bustling artistic neighborhood just west of the Historic Center. Behind a maze of Doctor's offices, you will find my speakeasy gallery and work space where we will spend our time together, ending with a short walk to Che Guevara's home- down the street

More tips

My studio is located on the 1st floor of a building constructed in 1890 and requires walking up one flight of stairs. Rain is unpredictable so be prepared for the 10 minute walk at the close.
