ARTIST STATEMENT

My childhood is the inspiration for my paintings.
My father is a mining engineer in chile. When he came home from work everyday he would bring me photos of the miners hard at work and covered in soot. I found a fascination in their expressions and my passion for painting portraits began.

My paintings are a reflection of growing up in all different countries and the experiences I had along the way.

To pursue my artistic dreams, in the years to come, I worked during the day in the financial market and painted with great passion and dedication at night.

After several years of working and painting I moved to New York to follow my dreams

Years After I moved to NYC I decided to start a family and moved to New Jersey. I was diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately had to put a pause in my passion.

Presently I am cancer free and pursuing my career more passionate than ever.
