Modern Impressionist Artist based in Longmont, CO


Artist Statement
Art From The Heart

My work is considered to be modern impressionistic, because of the painterly qualities, and the use of bold, vibrant colors.

My artistic journey forced me to go within, and explore parts of myself that I would not have visited on my own will. On this path, I learned to appreciate and celebrate the good things in life.

Love, Joy, Hope, Gratitude, Fun.

As I paint, I pour this emotions onto the canvas. The outcome is a dance of bright colors, raw textures, energetic flow, and dreamy pieces that takes the viewer to an enchanted world where only love resides.

I am grateful to share my work with you

Short Bio:

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.
