Artist Statement



The act of creation is holy and profound in all its manifestations - not only the natural world surrounding us, but also the artistic manifestations representing life.
Through my art, I try to represent and communicate visually what I believe illustrates the beauty of life and nature - from special moments or places, and from small things, whether symbolic or not.
I find inspiration for my compositions in my surroundings, in moments that are for one reason or another important to me. I look deeply into my feelings to express what I believe is meaningful.
Being an artist has been an exciting and overwhelming experience that enriches my life and gives me the opportunity to share with others some of my experiences, views and feelings.
My preferred medium is oil on canvas; sometimes I explore other mediums such as pastel, charcoal, and graphite.
I explore three basic themes in my compositions that I call: Trilogy; Insights in Forms and Shapes; and Visions of Places.
“Trilogy” is a study where I represent what I believe to be the essence of life: the eternal and constant presence of three elements in many aspects of life and nature. “Insights in Forms and Shapes” it is a more free and fun aspect of my work, where I explore the characteristics and interactions of forms, colors and their environs. The creation of these elements and their tridimensional aspects stimulates my artistic imagination.
In “Visions of Places”, I represent what I have experienced traveling: remarkable places in their own beauty, significant moments, and lasting impressions.
