Biography


My journey began in the beautiful port of Acapulco, Mexico where I was born to an artistic family and raised with an appreciation of music, literature and art. I learned early to explore colors and patterns in a variety of formats.

I have worked in many mediums, including painting on Silk, Batik, Oils, Pastels, Watercolors, Ceramics, Collage, and for the past 12 years, in Acrylics and Mixed Media.

Experimenting with Mixed Media that makes you want to touch the surface or explore beneath is my passion. I love "change" and painting with texture, combined with "the unexpected" in this medium, offers unlimited possibilities.

My inspiration comes from the simplest, most beautiful reflection of nature, people and landscape, from Portraits to Abstract. I began doing portraits after falling in love with Rembrandt's paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where I lived for over 30 years, and visiting his original studio in Amsterdam. The exposure and appreciation of Art, from the Modern to the Old Masters, instilled in me the desire to create my own style.

Art is part of my life. My paintings reflect the places that I have visited and the connection between the subject and myself. The encouragement that I have received from friends and family has motivated me to exhibit them. My work received recognition at The Waterford Foundation Exhibit in October 2013.
