I am a Cuban born, Florida based and Miami raised, self taught mixed media and fine arts mosaic artist. My art is energy in (E)motion expressed through various forms. I enJOY effortlessly blending colors, emotions, energy and imagination to create my work!
I have always been passionate about the arts and creating. From elementary through high school I always excelled with both art and music. In the fifth grade I was accepted to a magnet school for the arts. I was very good at drawing and back then I spent a lot of my time mostly sketching comic book superheroes and writing some poetry. I was also a major band geek and a member of the middle school Concert, Symphonic and Jazz Band. I played the Oboe, Alto Sax and Clarinet. Later in life I eventually took up painting with acrylics and also found another love when I started working with mosaics. Musically, now I play guitar and still continue to write some poetry and song-write. Whether it's a new painting, a mosaic piece or a song, for me the creative arts allow me the space to express myself authentically, freely without boundaries, using color and sometimes melodies!
I mainly paint with acrylics and work with glass making mosaics. I appreciate texture and love using bold and vibrant colors. I’m aesthetically drawn to clean and sharp lines and designs with geometric shapes. I use any and all mediums available to me. Often times I incorporate materials like glass/mirrors, gold leaf, paper, metal, dried flowers, wood and various other mediums or recycled objects with my paintings. I love repurposing things to give them a new life and create beautiful art! And each pice definitely has a creation story of their own and their process. I’ve always been a dreamer and can appreciate the beauty in the most ordinary things. My most influential constant inspiration comes from nature and life itself! When it comes to creating and painting most of the time it happens intuitively and spontaneously. Other times I may get a vision or have a dream of something that inspires me but once I begin, I allow myself the freedom to create through feeling and intuition. I'm learning more everyday that just as life is about the journey and not the destination, with art, it's beauty also lies in the process! I would say my artwork and music both reflect some of my own journey through self-discovery and spirituality, mostly creating and writing by personal life experience.
My work has most recently been featured at the Wilton Collective Art Gallery in Fort Lauderdale 2021 and Drastix Restaurant in Hollywood, as part of Hollywood's ArtWalk 2022 & 2023. I’m excited to continue creating art that is vibrantly expressive and speaks to the viewer through energetic resonance!
