I am a self taught artist currently living in Lodi, New Jersey. Originally I was born and raised in Colombia,nevertheless I consider myself a global citizen.
Creativity has been always essential to my being. I believe that art comes from oneself and should not be directedby anyone's rules or techniques, so search for new ideas and evoking new sensations is fundamental in my art.
I studied Graphic Design, which gave me a way to incorporate my love of fine art into a more marketable skill. Not only was I able to make a good living, I also had a new direction for my art. My hope is that people viewing my work will gain insight into my vision of the world as well as their own.
Painting is a comfortable medium to me. It comes naturally and I paint what I feel. I like to get something onto the canvas quickly so as not to lose the feeling I have at that particular moment. I either do quick skecthes and then move right to the painting.
As an artist I feel symbolism is my favorite element in my own art. To be able to sign a meaning and draw there own relation to that piece.
In creating my paintings, I try to create images that tell a story, or invoke a feeling for the subject matter
