I am a Venezuelan-born artist, based in Chicago.
In 1989, I had the opportunity to come to the United States and experience life as an exchange student. A year later, I received a full tennis scholarship and moved to Atlanta to study Graphic Design. It was during my time in Atlanta that I discovered my love for drawing, painting, and photography.
Over the years, however, my pens and brushes got pushed aside by the time demands of my career. In 2000, I moved to Chicago for a new job opportunity, but it was not until 2010 that I reconnected with them. The creative process, is for me, a balm for the soul, much like meditation.
My goal is to create art that makes the viewer feel something—sadness, happiness, love, rage, longing. Something.
