Artist Statement:

The majority of my work, throughout my entire career has been focused on Latin American Art, because of my passion for the indigenous cultures and folklore of the Americas in general, and Latin America in particular and a deep desire to share them here in my present home. The last few years I have shifted my attention more toward the American southwest. There is always a contemporary approach to my work to glorify it visually and emotionally with each trace of a desired subject matter. Music and imagery play importat roles in each pieces that I create. It is poetry in motion, that moves me deeply in form and color. As an artist, I feel the need to explor and create new works of art that reflect new visions and renew my whole existence, it is a way to create a new chapter in my career and that's why I am transcending and focus on the American experience of the great Southwest.
