As a young child in Mexico surrounded by the vibrancy of my culture, my eye was always down to the bold and rich storytelling that unfolded in my daily life. Later in my teenage years as an immigrant to the United States, my visual imagery only enhanced further, pushing me to explore art as a communication form of expression. My journey has been my education; feeling confident in my work, learning from my mistakes as self-taught artist, and discovering new techniques; I have fulfilled my dream now as a professional artist for over a decade. I am constantly humbled by collectors and opportunities to exhibit my work nationally and internationally; and I only aim to continue to inspire them with new works.
I consider my paintings contemporary abstracts: they are expressive, full of color, energy, bold, and inspirational. My work is often created with acrylics, but I am always exploring new ideas or materials and let my organic process take me to discover a new painting. My inspiration draws from nature’s untamed colors and the vibrant fusion of both my Mexican and American cultures. The result creates a unique snapshot of the moment in time from my life. Painting is my passion, and I want to inspire others through my work and life.
