ABOUT ME

I am an artist based in The Netherlands but originally from Mexico. My work is inspired by nature and my main subjects are portraits, botanical, space, and animals.

I have a degree in Industrial Design by Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESM) but decided that my passion is in art and I am so happy to be able to share this with you.

Most of my paintings follow a contemporary style, and there is always associations with the natural world. I am interested in contrast and duality. My pieces are the result of accumulated experiences over time, I like to find inspiration everywhere.

Watercolor is such an unpredictable technique, it behaves as if it has a will on its own. You cannot control it, you just have to let it flow, keep on adding layers and expect it to be something beautiful at the end.

Regardless I have been painting for years, I am still learning, and I will ever be.
