ARTIST STATEMENT:

My work is usually filled with the colors and vibrancy from my home country (Mexico). I work with oil. Tempera is a specialty of mine and although acrylic has tempted me a few times, I always go back to oil.

The subject of my work has changed through time, much the same as our personality. I like human figure even though I am not a portrait painter, still life and glass are my favorites. There are so many things I want to paint; my interests can go from flowers to a bison, from a Peacock to a vase and they all fulfill my need to paint.

It seems like nothing new is invented and everything is possible in the world of painting now a days. I simply go with what my "gut" tells me, so I paint what I feel like painting with the same dedication as always. I know that if I don't paint what I like at the moment... it will not come through the way I like it. And you have to please yourself!

I am a work in progress, always learning. Whatever I paint, I want to paint it well, with passion, sincerity and talent. I like to believe that my paintings resemble me: direct, honest, brave and free from all ambiguity.

I currently live in Rocky Mountain House, AB, in the country, where dogs, a cat, chickens, cows in the summer, big fish in the pond and the view of the Rocky Mountains fill my eyes.
