Inspired by the vibrant colors and visual richness of my childhood in Madrid  and Guatemala, I use color to express mood and emotion.

I am a figurative painter whose subjects emerge entirely from my imagination. My work is totally spontaneous and intuitive. My subjects have enigmatic faces inviting the viewer to imagine a narrative.


I work with oil acrylic paints on canvas and panels. The method involves applying multiple layers of paint. 


My work has appeared in numerous national and international juried exhibits and has been displayed in London’s West End and New York City galleries.


My studio is in beautiful Marin County. I'm mostly a self-taught artist.

Thank you for viewing my art!
