Art is not always about pretty things. It's about who we are, what happened to us, and how our lives are affected.
Director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Renwick Gallery in Washington
Painter, sculptor, designer
Art should be accessible to everybody at all levels. My intention as artist is to make the art experience more democratic so that spectators can have a closer relationship with art. What I share with you is my personal vision of several topics that are close to my heart: immigration, women social issues, and today's humanity challenges. The core of my work seeks first to arouse your interest to dive into an art piece due to its reliefs and volumes. Once I have your attention, I will ask you to surrender to explore the work: color, form, textures...
Even if my work is abstract, one can relate to it from a humanistic point of view as it represents emotions and situations that common to any human being: joy, sadness, euphoria, compassion, understanding. Heavy textured surfaces and bright colors are my trademark.
