Maya is a Latin American artist from the Philadelphia area, based currently in New Orleans, LA. She works across various mediums, including special effects, mask-making and puppetry, theater creation, installation arts, music, creative writing, and film. 

She believes in art as a cheap and accessible expression that can be used to celebrate, house, and protect communities in need. She believes in speaking power through the lens of myth and origin creation. Her work has a strong foundation in collaborative practices grounded in shared vision, equipment, educational resources, space, opportunities, and worker ownership.
