Artist Statement
I am drawn to bold, vibrant colors to create paintings that expresses my love and enthusiasm for life.

Yes! I am crazy in love with life, with all it's challenges, ups and downs. I create intuitivly from the heart. I get emotionally involved with each piece (shedding a few tears more often than not) with the hopes to translate all these feelings into the canvas.

My inspiration also comes from radiating sunsets, enchanting forests and colorful floral fields. This gift of nature has a profound effect on me, enticing me into creating joyful paintings that aims to the heart. Whether using oils or acrylics I work the canvas with palette knives, brushes and my finger to create spontaneous strokes with lots of texture.

Joy is to create paintings that invigorates the senses and aims for the heart.


My story. It begun around forty years ago, in a far, far away land… ok, not so far, just 5,000 miles, in a city called Lima -Peru. Known for their delicious dishes like “Ceviche” and “Lomo Saltado". And recently “Machu-Picchu” was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

If you ever travel to Peru, this is a place you must see before you leave.

Anyway, getting back to my story… after 16 years of Peruvian Ceviche, my parents moved us (my three sisters and me) to the US. Change is always difficult, but we adjusted quickly. Through the years, life happened, and art became a long forgotten passion. I had to work, pay bills and have fun, which i did plenty, so I m not complaining.

It wasn't until my thirties that I got a chance to take an art class. It had been years since I was around art supplies, so at the store, I got an adrenaline rush! After that, I took a few more classes, won a few awards, and got hooked to creating new pieces. The strange thing was that it took me 10 years to gather focus, discipline and the courage needed to follow my dreams.

Now, here I am. finally quit my day job to do what i love. I am painting, growing as an artist and enjoying the process. It is a humbling experience.

Mission Statement:

"Buying a painting creates a special bond between the artist and the buyer, both linked by the emotional and visual energy of the artwork. My mission is to create pieces with the hope to inspire you with my love for life."

    Owner, Artist

    I have been painting and drawing since I can remember. I participated in the school mural and art projects in my country. After moving to the US I replaced color pencils and brushes with a computer. It wasn't long before I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. After a decade of working for a local firm my love for painting re-directed my life once more. I quit my day job. It was time to follow my dream and become a full time artist.
