Artist Statement of Work

Tell us about your work (style, approach, philosophy, subject and/or theme):

I would describe my style as versatile in terms of color and technique. I’m comfortable working with both vivid colorful, and monotone palettes. I use these color choices to create a specific mood or effect in each piece while prioritizing aesthetic appeal for a truly one-of-a-kind creation. As an art alchemist, I love experimenting with different techniques and materials to push the boundaries of traditional art. I often find inspiration in my Mexican background. For me, art is a way to express my innermost thoughts and feelings and to connect with others on a deeper level. One of my main goals as an artist is to make art accessible and affordable to all and to inspire people to appreciate art and see its value beyond just a decorative piece. I believe that art has the power to transform people's lives and bring a positive change in everyone’s life. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of art. Through my art, I hope to create a world where art is not just a luxury but an essential part of life. I want to create a space where people can connect, share their experiences, and find common ground.
