I was born in Germany into a family that recognized and supported the belief that I was destined to be an artist. I was blessed with a fertile mind and a keen eye for color. As a teenager I grew up in Mexico City, and the sights, sounds, and colors of that fairytale youth are etched upon my creative spirit to this day - my artwork reflects this inspiration.
I've been artistic all my life, but in 2007 I discovered the depth and versatility of oil painting and have been captivated ever since. I have always been a free thinker and the growth of my spiritualism in recent years has caused me to develop a strong affinity toward Mandalas. I consider myself a 'naive painter of the esoteric world' most of all.
I also am fascinated by op-art and the kinetic aspects of color interaction, and am exploring the dynamics of fractals and geometry as well. It's like discovering a secret code! Sometimes, when my brush is on the canvas, I feel as if I am an anthropologist unearthing a relic of some kind, only in this case it is a colored image.
If you are interested in ordering a print of my artwork, please contact me directly so I can upload a better photograph (this is to avoid pirating of my artwork) and will know about your request - I very much appreciate this!
