Artist Statement: There is something that fascinates me about colors and I love to use it on my canvas. I’m always searching for a rich and translucent texture, obtained through various material and tools that has allowed me to enjoy my mixed medias, acrylics and oils paintings in the pursuit of achieving my subject matter of the woman figure. I describe my artwork as contemporary.
