I am a visual artist and independent curator which gives me the time to work on my own art and to create new and exciting exhibits. My creative life today is much more interesting since the diversity is so great. My body of work includes painting, etching and photography. I specialize in portraits, murals and high-end corporate decor.
Born and raised in Venezuela, settled in New England in 1976. My formal education is in architecture and interior design; however my artistic abilities were expanded in Mexico City where I studied and experienced the Fine Arts. My art career began there in 1989, as I developed my own artistic language. Since then, I've exhibited in many solo and group shows around the world and my artwork is collected in the US, Latin America, and Europe.
I've lived in Texas since 1992. In Frisco I chose the old downtown water tower as one of my favorite subjects, developing a collection of paintings and limited edition prints. My colorful version of the welcoming old Frisco water tower is used now to promote Frisco's Historic Downtown, the Main Street Merchants Association, networking sites, and many community events.
