Artist Statement:
The main reason I am an artist is because it makes me happy, plain and simple. It gives me joy to bring beauty and color into the world. My art making process is peaceful and meditative. It is soothing and relaxing to me. Starting my paintings with a general idea, I allow them to evolve intuitively. I never know where this process is going to take me. It often takes a life of its own.

Originally from Argentina, I have been exposed to a sophisticated Latin American culture, where art and music are highly regarded and are a normal part of everyday life. All of the color and energy of my Latin American background nourish the paintings I create.

My work is intended to be healing – to spark a sense of well being in myself and the viewer.

I am deeply appreciative of my fans and collectors. It is my hope that you'll visit often. I will continually add more images.
Thank you for your support!
