I'm a native Puerto Rican born in Ponce and raised in New York City. I returned to Puerto Rico in my teens, obtained my college degree in Business and shortly after, traveled to Chicago in search for a brighter future. I currently reside in the Northwest side of the city.
My Artistic Journey:
As a child, I “loved” Art. I instinctively sketched, drew and enjoyed it with passion. I excelled at it and it made me feel good about myself. Having a career and a family preoccupied most of my time and the arts remained dormant until I reached my early thirties. I had gone through a divorce and it helped me coupe with a difficult situation. I started exploring my creativity more deeply to fill a void and soon realized this journey let me to exactly where I was meant to be in life. I transitioned from drawing to painting. It was a very natural transition for me. I took art workshops, worked with other artists and discovered a new world that I now can never walk away from.
I experiment with pencils, charcoals, pastels, acrylics, and mixed media but prefer oils. I am very detail oriented by nature and this medium allows me to express myself with few limitations. My style and subjects of my work vary depending where I find myself in my journey in life.
Painting takes me to a place where I am unveiled, my soul stripped from all the worldly elements and the warmth of my blood flows and carries the movement of my brush...its a dance, the colors are my music, at late hours in the night...when everyone is dreaming in their sleep, my brush dances over my canvas and I am dreaming too.
