In my work, I try to capture a feeling of life. An idea catches my attention, circles my mind, and inspires me to create. My goal is to capture it and manifest it. And if I'm "right", when all is going well, I feel a clear connection and at peace with myself. It feels like I'm channeling something beyond me. All I need to do is get out of the way. I start a painting and I don't know how the process is going to be. I feel my way through it. When I do this it leaves room for discovering new ways and techniques. This has been my learning process. I love color, how it changes with light and how light makes it come alive. I use oils most of the time. I use only 4 colors primaries and white. I like them for their buttery texture.Plus they dry slowly. This allows me to pause the process and began again with, perhaps, a fresh perspective. I sometimes use a brush, but mainly, I use a painting knife. The knife allows me to bring clean and vibrant color, as well as texture, to the canvas. I was born in Baja California Sur, Mexico in 1981. I am a self taught artist now residing in Crestone Colorado.
