Artwork Description
Description
This painting was started with an abstract expressionism style application of acrylic paint. The process of then applying collage and the addition of further layers is what inspires me. I can't wait to see what moments occur naturally. I let that and my intuition guide me in what to do after that. I have shared, by the title I chose, what I see in this piece but what the viewer sees is their own connection with the painting. I used acrylic paints due to its availability of colors, smoothness in texture, and ability to cover large areas. I used paint markers because of it graphic outcome, durability, and smoothness. I have developed an abstract expressionism style because it allows a total freedom and intuition for paint strokes. I have taken it a step further and have then contained the wildness with some graphic elements, while still allowing the image to mostly develop on its own.

Bio
I was born in Mexico and grew up in Alvin, Texas.  I attended the University of Houston in 2001-2005.  In June of 2021 my family and I relocated to Seattle, WA.  The time spent with my family on walks, trips, and adventures definitely influences my work.  I also draw inspiration from looking within, emotions and feelings of nostalgia.  Outside of making art I enjoy reading self-improvement and non-fiction books, playing tennis, and camping.

Artist Statement
After 20 years of painting, I continue to be inspired by nature and work in the representational style.   I now may also join a realistic subject with mixed media.  My abstract work is about letting the result surprise you after putting automatic and impulsive actions in a sequence.  You don’t always know what will happen or how it will look.  It is about satisfying your impulses and making the mark that comes from within.  An intuitive process of layering collage with mixed media, letting the marking actions transform your painting into something you would not have thought of.  




Whether its an intuitive abstract piece or realistic rendering my works are capsules of color.  I mostly choose muted, vintage colors unless as I’m working the present layout calls for a vibrant hue as a contradictory or complimentary element.  As the colors are placed next to each other they start to interact.  That’s where the fun begins!
