Mixed Media Artist
My current work captures the complex poetry of two rich and vastly diverging cultural experience. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in New York City, has allowed me to weave together elements from each experience that has shaped my unique view. Nature and its inherent variety of patterns creeps its way into each of the works. My use of mixed media represents the complexity of my personal experiences and desire to make sense of my existence. My choice to combine abstract, organic forms, representational imagery, and pattern designs demonstrates my search for harmony, balance, and rhythm, which are essential to my work.
