Artist Brief Biography:

“I was raised in Colombia South America, and later living in Germany, Mexico and the United States.  I studied art and music in Colombia, and received a MFA from James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia.

My life path lead me into experiencing different cultures; living in Colombia, Germany, Mexico and the United States. While encountering new people, places, and beliefs, my Weltanschauung was enriched. I understand that the most valuable knowledge I was granted is the conviction that all humans are equal and experience the same needs and feelings. We share experiences that transcend the world of forms, color, gender country of origin, or religion.

My Work addresses a range of social concerns, and using diverse media speaks about multicultural and cross-cultural issues. These concerns include violence against women and children, and the cultural displacement and fragmentation experienced by persons torn from their community or country.”

” An Artist Never Retire”

After four months of relocation from California to Florida to our retirement home to be close to our children and grand children, it is time to  make some steps toward an active personal and professional life again.

I am looking forward to the final stages of the construction  of my  private art studio, and to complete move into a new home after

all the renovation work done.

I will be writing regularly about this life transition, the new experiences and how they influence my art.
