"Serenity in life and in the abstract world."
I was born in Lima, Peru. I studied art at Teachers College , Columbia University as well as at the Art Students League of New York. I have been painting since 1995. When I paint I am totally focused on the canvas trying to create an image that has volume through color and movement through brushstrokes. I want this image to be understood as a scene in a movie. The scene I intend to portray has rhythm and movement. I play with color to give depth and different planes which allow me to create a setting. I feel the rhythm of what I am intending to convey. I leave the rest to your imagination. My background in filmmaking helps me see things the way I do and create scenes that I want to portray.
