About the Artist
I'm a multidisciplinary artist; my creative practice ranges from painting, ceramics, illustrations, and murals, and lately, I've been immersed in watercolors, exploring various mediums to stimulate my senses and support added intuitions among amplified perceptions when creating. In addition, these involvements support me as an art educator, enabling me to share added artistic experiences among peers. My academic formal backdrop is Fine Arts, Teaching Visual Arts, and Education; these degrees have broadened my understanding of art, learners, and life and continue to do to discerning and being guided with empathy in an awakened state of creativity and augmented dexterities.
My upbringing in a developing country has profoundly influenced my appreciation of art, culture, and color. And the need to advocate for the environment, nature's florae and fauna. Living near the Everglades, as my neighboring setting, inspires me to elevate my visual depictions to safeguard and represent the significance of this sacred land, home to many species and humanity. Furthermore, the close encounters with multicultural society empower meaningful narratives in an uplifting spirit and respect for all people from diverse backgrounds, honoring ethnicity and cultural identity. As an artist, my driving force is to generate and leave a positive change and as an act of healing among viewers, the community, nature, and the world.
I'm filled with gratitude that various artworks are included in private collections across the United States and Internationally. And have been featured in print and online publications such as the Naples Daily News, Florida Weekly, Coastal Breeze News, The River Weekly News, Paradise Coast, SW Spotlight News Magazines, Naples Illustrated Charity Register, Voyage MIA, Shout Out LA, Casa America, Professional Artist, the bibliographic book collection from National Library of Honduras Juan Ramón Molina are to name a few. Art has also been commissioned to illustrate Children's books and fables published by the National Association of Writers in Honduras, La Biblioteca GN among publishers. In addition, artworks have been selected to grace book covers such as Woman's Scream, a Worldwide Movement that pays tribute to women's empowerment from all backdrops in life, Mother Nature, plants' beauty and importance, and many more stories that charm youthful audiences and those young at heart.
I find importance in representing visual narratives of wildlife, natural environments, and humanity. In the natural world, such as birds and the Everglades, to raise awareness about its sacredness and fragility. And our connection with nature, as this interrelation heightens, we can connect with ourselves and all in unification. Upholding and appreciating nature, the suitability and growth of our world's future existence can flourish and lessen climate change. As an artist, it is an ultimate gift that, through my artistic enactment, reflects the consequential importance of the sustainability of the region and the world, such as the Everglades and the Florida Wildlife Corridor, which support ecosystems for lifecycles to evolve.
In my creation process, there is an inherent need to explore aspects of the natural world and human experience in renderings. As a profound meditation on these contemplations in an alluding state unearthing living beings' inner essence and signification, revealing added meanings beyond color. The themes gravitate to the recurring social issues of climate change, culture, and cultural identity, among other societal expressions, in an ever-changing sphere. Furthermore, conveying the core value of life. I reunite the female gender with mother nature or represent her as surrounded by bountiful resources; plants, trees, and birds, representing freedom and rising high as a metaphor to achieve aspirations and goals, contribute to the all-inclusive roles pursued throughout existence. Nevertheless, cultural heritage is indispensable since it makes our lives great because of who we are, our diversity, and where we are headed.
