Since childhood, I've been intrigued and fascinated by the wonders of nature as well as the star lit night sky. Often times, I found myself gazing upon their mesmerizing glitter and beauty. Imagination was the only way of understanding the vastness of things above and around me. As a child, the world I saw within was different than the reality my eyes perceived. My attempts to recreate the inner visions using color pencils, crayons, and pastel were often applauded by teachers and peers. Still, I felt limited as to how much could be expressed with these mediums. At age thirteen, I picked up the brush. Blank canvases became a windows to emotion, visions and the conscious beauty I experience. Most of my work are painted visions that flows from mind to brush to canvas. Usually, no sketching or outlines are used, only free movement of pigments.
The works of my late father, a school teacher and artist, helped to aspire my journey in art. Large scale murals at Orange County Public Schools has been my way of inspiring the young. Teach in art lessons with students has also been a true delight. Some of my artworks have contributed to public schools, marine life conservation efforts and hunger projects in Florida.
