i am a self-defined Nuyorican creative (that is a Puerto Rican who is from both the isles of Manhattan, NYC and the Caribbean). I share daily in the joy of education and live in a cute port town in New York, in a 'teensy-weensy' apartment with my two dogs and canary named Valentino.

Painting TimeLapse 

The Joyita series is a small series of resin paintings I am making for the Nyack indoor street fair. I will be posting dates time and place here soon. This is a quick time lapse of my process I hope you enjoy!


Joyita Series (little jewel) layered resin ink paintings

New small work available - stay tuned for the Nyack Center's new art/craft fair Nov. 29th!2015

All my resin experimenting is beginning to pay off as I am beginning to return to older paintings and repaint layers between the resin, and re-coating. The result is intriguing to me as it mimics my escapades with warm fused glass and the layering of fused glass blocks that I used to do. It demands a lot of patience ...and is ridiculously difficult to photograph, as you can't see the dimension or depth in the photo as you can when the piece is in your hand...but part of me likes that defying of virtual space.

New 'Latina' Art, New Solo Show- Tonalli, Anne Arundel Community College Gallery Art

It's been a whirl-wind of a summer driving cross-country and producing new art work in a traveling studio with two pups and my beau, as I drove to and from NY to Mexico this summer. Let's just say I'm looking forward to some hotel-free normalcy, but have a new found itch for a tear-drop silver bullet trailer home...Anyway here is a new solo exhibit to show for it - If you're around Arnold, Maryland Anne Arundel Community College hope you stop by to check it out! Other wise stay tuned to my blog as I will be slowly revealing the pieces in the show here. My Lepidoptera Heart 22x30 Ink and Mixed Media August 2013 Detail shot of My Lepidoptera Heart

You Cut Me Once...Unfinished Illo by m.diaz Traget Locked...Unfinished Illustration ... m.diaz

These are done with black ink, white ink on Rives BFK paper that I distressed and they are meant to evoke the mood I've been in lately.

I'm off to San Diego this Wed. for this years Annual National Assoc. of Indep. Schools People of Color Conference. It is the first year in five years that I am NOT presenting and I am elated at the prospect of being at peace while there! It is going to be my 8th year attending and I suspect it may be my last for while. So stay tuned as I visit yet another awesome city and bring you some blog posts about it!
