artist pictureArtist statement 

My purpose and struggle as a painter is to be able to reflect what I am feeling inside. This is a difficult task and always evolving, but a very rewarding one when light and shadows, warm and cold, expression and color melt together to form an emotion.

Short description of my work

I work mostly on canvas and board surfaces and use oil and acrylic paints but I am very intrigued about other mediums as well like watercolor, tempera and pastel. Some times I incorporate collage into my paintings.

Background

I was born in Cali, Colombia from an Italian family. After finishing High School in Bogotá I moved to Italy where I enrolled in the “Accademia di Belle Arti di Carrara” and spent four years studying Graphic Design under the guidance of very famous professors like Bruno Munari, Vittorio Coppola and Pier Carlo Santini. I spent a fifth year in Italy putting together a show with two other artists after winning a competition in Florence. After I settled in Boston, I received a Graphic Design Certificate from the School of the MFA and worked in that field for several years.  I have exhibited widely in the Boston area and I am a member of the Newton and Concord Art Association, Danforth Art, the Unbound Visual Arts, the Marion Art Center and the Arsenal Center for the Arts. Having a studio at Motherbrook has been eye opening and very inspirational, I enjoy being part of the Community and love the interaction with the artists in the building.
