As a self-taught artist, my present emotions and past experiences are what drive me to paint. By using elements such as vibrant colors and vivid textures, I invoke emotions such as passion or joy within my viewers. I create art because I enjoy the the spontaneous and intuitive process of seeing my work transform and evolve.Ultimately, I strive to make each of my paintings unique, full of energy, and ultimately meaningful.
Painting began as a self-taught hobby which quickly evolved into an outlet where I could express my emotions and reflect on life experiences. Studied at the Silvermine Art Center and the Greenwich Art Society.
Often emotions are what drive the energy of my paintings. Using bright colors and varying textures is how I capture my feelings; especially those of joy, sadness, or serenity. But, although my current emotions steer the direction of my paintings, my past has heavy influence on my art as well.
She is inspired by her experiences growing up in the stirring, seaside metropolis of Lima, Peru. This can be seen by the use of cool colors and variation, splashes, and movement throughout her paintings. Good fortune led her to take on many more adventures in places like Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Miami, Aspects in places like these such as warm weather, sunny days, and happy people can often been seen such as "Joy of Life." Today, she resides in New York with her husband and dog Ua.
Most of my work consist of fluid acrylics and ink. With acrylics, the canvas is usually coated with multiple thick and thin layers. And with ink, there is no structure. Often, applications are made freely, combined with drips, pours, and scribbles allowing for a feeling of unpredictability. I strive to give each of my pieces a sense of vitality, energy, force, and movement.
In essence,my style can be characterized and identified by the use of beautiful, vibrant colors.My work express my emotions, and stir energy within the viewer.
