As a child growing up in New York City, I loved creating art and instinctively drew and sketched at the age of 8. As a woman my transition into oil panting has allowed me to express myself on a more spiritual level. During my creative process I am releasing energy, recharging and heightening my spirituality. Art helps me discover and develop my inner strengths while allowing the viewer into my world.

 

I live in Chicago and work from studio#30 at Workshop4200 in the heart of Hermosa. I paint pieces inspired by my travels and experiences that touch my life. I use a variety of tools to create texture in my paintings, including pallet knives, brushes, sponges, combs and my bare hands. I work in layers, to add more depth and substance to my pieces. Oil paint is my favorite medium of preference but I also love pastels,acrylics and mixed media. My work is a mix of expressionism and realism that evokes femininity, love, and my cultural roots through the dance of color.  

Shortly after Hurricane Maria hit the island of Puerto Rico, I started a non-profit organization, "Arte al Rescate" alongside my friend Erica Sanchez. I felt compelled to do something in the relief efforts for Puerto Rico. After raising thousands of dollars with artwork from artists from across the world, I continue my crusade, making a difference every day in my community and abroad!

              Painting  takes me to a place where my soul dances,

              the colors are my music,

              at late hours in the night...

              when everyone is dreaming,

              my brush dances over my canvas and I am dreaming too.
