I have 3 main styles: Illustrative, Geometric, and Expressionist.
Trying to bring happiness or enjoyment to the viewers. I often create surrealistic scenes with animals or interesting characters as protagonists.
What medium(s) do you work in?
Mainly acrylic and graphite but I like to incorporate ink, gouache and other mediums at times to compliment the work.
My Grandfather who was a muralist and a painter. I studied graphic design/illustration and worked as a commercial artist for more than a decade. In 2015, after marrying and moving to the US, I was able to finally focus mainly on art.
As a graphic designer and illustrator, I was focused on giving the client what they wanted – even if it wasn’t a style or medium that catered to my tastes or strengths. Since focusing more on an art career, I went from recreating the styles of other artists to finding my own unique take on the Illustrative, Geometric, and Expressionist styles, usually including a sprinkling of my ” happy interpretations” of pop surrealism. Through that process I learned I am still evolving and growing, and am loving discovering new layers and challenges that cause me to develop as an artist.

I get inspiration by my Latin American Culture, the color of Guatemalan crafts, and also by the art world in general. I love to see art from all the different periods and styles.
