My passion is painting. Expressing myself producing Artworks is a blessing. Painting gives me many reasons to feel myself fully rewarded in life. I studied Engineering, and I feel proud of being able of merging the professional knowledge of the engineer with the natural talent of an artist.
The beauties of Nature and the search of an ecological equilibrium on Earth express themselves in my Art as its “leitmotiv”.
You will find in my Artworks a rainfall of Nature colors and moving forms in “perfect” contrast, together with the use of classic symbols. With your eyes on them, you will receive the impression that images, surprisingly, will come out from the canvas to stay by your side, with the power of making you forget the grays of urban cities.
I was born in Havana, Cuba. I live in USA since 1997.
In Cuba, as well as in the States I have been able to work as a freelance artist and as such, to support my family selling my Artworks in public plazas, fairs, galleries and art exhibitions, not only in Cuba and the States, but also in France and Spain. Online selling is an additional practical source of income, since this allows you to reach people all around the world.
I consider myself a proliferous artist. I have used Acrylic paint for producing Art pieces in canvas, wood, ceramics and fabric. I have several painting collections. Additionally, I work on demand for customized and commissioned paintings.
