About the artist

I love to create as well as observe how a work of art can uplift, inspire and heal. This is why I paint and when I am painting, these intentions guide me and become an integral part of the process. I believe in the value of Art as a healer for everyone.

I paint spontaneously, inspired by the vibrant colours that surround me here in Morelos, Mexico. My passion is for trees.

My preferred medium is acrylics and I like to include gold and silver leaf and my handmade papers, often adding finishing touches in oils. I create textures and reliefs with a variety of mixed media.

My work is included in private collections in Mexico, the USA, Europe and Australia. Over the last twenty-five years I have had individual shows in Mexico and have participated in many group exhibitions. I was one of three artists to obtain an award in The Healing Power of Art organised by Manhattan Arts International in 2010.
