Hello Ms. Lopez,

My name is Amanda Viltrakis and I am an undergraduate student at the University of New Mexico. Currently, I'm working on a paper about the psychology of the Borderlands. I wanted to reference some of your other artwork that specifically showed parts of the borders, but I don't know where to look. Months ago when all the crap in Santa Fe was going on, I went to a website that showed many of your pieces. One of them had a little girl in the foreground with the barbed-wire border in the back. That is one that I am specifically interested in. I'm mostly going to address how living on/in the Borderlands affects different aspects of psychology, like the maturing processees, epression of emotions, gender-relations, family and friend relations, etc. If you have any inputs, I would love to cite your ideas. Please e-mail me back with any information that you would like to add.

Thank you very much,
Amanda Viltrakis
