Artist Statement

The Art of Contentment

I embrace life with a meditative appreciation for the gift of being an artist. I have been painting professionally for over 20 years, and even though most people comment that my work is reminiscent of Picasso, I was most influenced by Spanish-born Puerto Rican artist, Angel Botello, known as the Caribbean Gaugin. Bottelo is considered one of the greatist Latin-American post-moder artists. He would often sculpt his own print rollers to create repetitive patterns within his whimsical compositions.

As a self-taught painter, my work incorporates a unique combination of reflective, iridescent tones with an earthy palette, often accented with a splash of intense color. The circular and geometric hand-painted patterns found in my work draw in the audience, allowing them to embrace the solace and harmony of my modern abtract figures.

In order to satisfy my ever-growing curiosity, I have branched out from my abstract figurative work and modern Madonna Icons to include farm animals, wildlife and peaceful meditative landscapes. My painting reflect day to day life; love of family, friends, partners, and the simple pleasures of the world around us.
