I see myself as a sculptor at heart but have spent several decades training in classical painting, both classical and modern sculpture, and printmaking.
I was drawn to sculpture as a three dimensional medium because of its potential to convey the power of emotion in an immediate and vital way.
I was born and raised in a Latin American culture bound by family, storytelling tradition, and community.
I am constantly influenced by and infusing all of these values in my art. My training as a physician developed a deeper love for the human form and its connectedness with science.
I work with different materials, but I gravitate to the most traditional ones, clay, stone and wood. I find my subject and then I carve . I use very little modeling to soften forms and surfaces.
