My life as an artist started when I was very young while I was growing up as a child in Madrid. The many museums and galleries I was exposed to early on would begin to fuel the artistic fire that was beginning to rage inside of me.
I was 5 when I picked up a paint brush for the first time.
Two years later I was having private shows at our home in Houston where my moms friends would come and buy my work. Though I was born in TX I would grow up living in both Houston and Madrid until my late teens. As I went through different periods of my life my influences would change.
Now I feel when I'm beginning a new work I pull from bits and pieces from my experiences and other works of art that have moved me in some way to inspire me. This is the fascinating moment you start to feel the body of work speak to you.
