I have been organizing international collaborations with printmakers since 2003. The first project "Bajo un mismo cielo" involved twelve artists, six from Mexico and six from the United States. We addressed a theme of commonality: all artists were from the state of Michoacan while six of us lived in the USA and six artists in Michoacan.

We created prints on how our experiences were similar and targeted culturally unifying elements. The second portfolio "Mnemonic: To Aid the memory" included the participation of 19 artists from several cities in Mexico and the USA. Artists interpreted mnemonic strategies that help us remember things in our daily lives. The year 2007 has seen the birth of two more print portfolios Bestiario & Nahuals One and Two. Each portfolio includes the participation of 20 artists from various countries including Spain, France, Mexico, Canada and the USA.
