Artist Statement:
As a self-didactic artist, I find in art the way of bringing to light the deepest feelings of the spirit and soul. Art is a cleansing process that exposes the weaknesses and strengths that reside within me. I believe noble gifts come from a divine source. Thus I leave my subconscious to guide me through the creation of surrealistic metamorphic human figures that become a reaction from personal experiences lived with all relations searching for the muse that will bring about balance. Oil and acrylics guide my journey on the canvas. I do allow myself to be lead through pastels, watercolors and mixed-media to create 3-dimensional sculptures.
Relationship to Chicago:
The relationship of my artistic profession in Chicago is being in direct contact with the community, integrating with projects that promote our culture. Supporting the artists by creating cultural events and workshops for the families in the community. Consulting and offering my graphic services to non-for-profit and cultural organizations. As co-founder of OPEN Center for the Arts, we accomplish a dream of providing a space where all artists can come together to share, showcase, refine, and develop their talents as well as support entrepreneurship opportunities in the arts while connecting their growth to the community.
