Mixed Media Artist

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hi there, I am a Colombian self taught artist, currently living and working in Vancouver, Washington.   

My artistic medium is mixed media on canvas or wood boards.

ABOUT MY PROCESS

Each painting fuses the sketching of the subject with layers of collage, acrylic, ink, charcoal, spray paint and repetitive mark making that adds texture and depth.

My work is usually and foremost inspired by color and its delicious combinations, the vibrancy of my heritage and my daily work practice. In my paintings, you will find pieces of my childhood such as the religious imaginary I grew up with, elements of nature, my nostalgia for the old and the pleasure I find on being a story teller.  I aim to use color and whimsical details to turn ordinary elements of our existence into a magical and joyful story. 


Aiming  to elevate the ordinary in thoughtful and often whimsical ways, my art is meant to inject more joy into our daily existence.
