About the Artist

I realized that I was an artist since I was a child, I really liked to draw and paint, especially with crayons and colored pencils. And what I remember most from my childhood is that I liked very much to color characters that I created myself and after I had them painted I would cut them out and create scenarios with them.

About the Artist

I realized that I was an artist since I was a child, I really liked to draw and paint, especially with crayons and colored pencils. And what I remember most from my childhood is that I liked very much to color characters that I created myself and after I had them painted I would cut them out and create scenarios with them.

My artistic style is a creative realism. I like very much to paint women, horses, boys and girls, landscapes, that is to say different themes and I give them all my artistic mark because when I dominate the drawing I give them color with a wide chromatic range, where the light is reflected giving the planes of light and shadow. My painting is also very feminine, delicate, laborious.

When I am in front of a cardboard or a canvas I can invent a new world where everything is possible and my characters and my fantasies begin to appear. For example I like very much to paint the spring in full color, with flowers, petals, leaves, suns, butterflies and my women appear with an autobiographical look, because I see myself in them and the stories that all my paintings tell are my stories, anecdotes lived by me, or I invent them.

For me, creating is a very dynamic process, because the images come to mind with the colors and their history and it's just a matter of sitting down and capturing them on the canvas and in this way the stories come to life. When I work all my thinking is positive, creative, and that is reflected in my painting, a very feminine and beautiful painting that invites you to contemplate it.

Besides being a painter, I worked as a teacher in a painting school for children from 12 to 14 years old. It was a very nice experience because the children are very creative and like to mix colors and experiment with various techniques, such as collages, tempera and watercolor.
