I am a Costa Rican artist living in The Woodlands, Texas. My inspiration for painting nature based themes derived from the experiences I gained during my youth in Costa Rica and the wonderful memories I retain of those times.
I enjoy living where I’m surrounded by nature and observing its wildlife. The colors, shapes, textures, light and shadows of wildlife and their habitats all inspire me. It is in these moments, when I’m “listening” to what nature offers, that I imagine how I can put these inspirations into my art. These are the times when my art works come alive in my mind.
In addition to my oil paintings, silk painting became a component of my artistic expression and career a few years ago. Each day I continue to learn new things from this wonderful art medium! Butterflies are a common theme of my silk art and symbolize the metamorphosis of my journey as an artist.
