I was born in San jose, Costa Rica. Since I can remember drawing, painting and art have been my constant
companions; I grew up around colored pencils, paper, illustrations and with everything which I could capture
the fantasies that where in my thoughts. I make my paintings and my creations in my own studio, I do not really
need to be outside because my paintings are born in my heart and in my mind. My favorites themes are dreamy,
fantastic and beatiful women with multicolor auras, enigmatic and mysterious women that go out through the
doorway of my imagination.
I live on the Pacific coast, a beautiful place called Playa Avellanas where I have a gallery and enjoy the nature
and the beautiful birds, colorful butterflies and howler monkeys, as we say here "Congo" monkeys. Now, I want
to share my world with everybody like a musician shares a beautiful song filling their hearts with dreams.
