Thank you for visiting my web site
 I was born in Santiago,Chile and for the las 30 years I have been a resident of Miami,Florida
I am primarily a self taught artist
I taught myself to paint by reading books and magazines and studying the work of other artists.
Currently I paint still-life, landscapes and figures in oil and acrylic.
Art has been a lifetime passion of mine, I seek to capture the different effects of light and form in landscape, figures and still-life.
My painting challenge is trying to capture the way light transforms
the ordinary into something spectacular and extraordinary.
When I use a photograph as reference for my painting, what
 is important is not what we capture in the photograph
but what inspired us to take that photo in the first place.
With this in mind we let our imaginations and creativity
 become a prisoner of the photograph.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions.
I would be happy to get back to you.
Thank you.
