My Story

 

I was born in Guatemala and lived there most of my life until I moved to California. The transition was difficult and pushed me out of my comfort zone in various ways.  Even though art has been an important part of my life, I never thought I would be spending most of my time creating it.    

As a child I always felt at home in nature; I used to spent endless hours in my parents garden. When I became an adult I decided to study biology and began to pick up oil painting on a side as a hobby.  I tried to experiment with other forms of art like music and sculpture, but I realized my artistic connection is the expression of color.  

The art I create is inspired mostly by nature.  I feel endlessly surprised on how wise and beautiful it can be.  Being able to observe nature and translate it into art is my goal.  I'm still on the road of experimentation, and I hope some people will come along with me as I dive into the creation of art.
