My artist statement, "Stories are told without words, so you can hear with your eyes." explains my creative  process: tell the story on a canvas, awaking as many senses as possible.My work is representational, using oil painting impasto with palette knife.

This process allows me to emphasize textures, experiment visual hierarchy with colors, contrast, and distinct character. 

With a passion and education in the arts, I have made a successful career in design,for which I have won 23 national and international awards.

Almost like living a double life, I keep things separated, as they are different in nature. As a jewelry designer, the end product of my everyday work has no questions, everything is obvious.But when I paint, my creativity is free, evolved, experimental, natural, raw and bold.
