In my paintings you see faces in many sizes. They reflect the mix races from my Nicaraguan roots – Native American, African, Spanish. I call them the spiritual guard … messengers of the unseen world.
These entities channel the value of life and love on this planet Earth. My technique of mixing bold colors with geometrical shapes is a representation that everything in nature is connected with each other.
For me, painting is sacred, and I want my paintings to emanate the universal love within us and among us.
