" If I take God out of my art my colors will be dull & my hand cripple."
Hand-built Porcelain 5"w x 5"d x 9"h
I was born in the neighborhood of the rain forests of Costa Rica, it’s colors and richness are engraved on my pieces, in a romantic way they tell a story. I explore the world and the different cultures through their colors and textures, through what I see and feel.
Painting and sculpting are the doors that led me to a wonderful world where my dreams and my reality come alive. Inspiration come to me more as a feeling rather than an image in my brain, and when I look at the piece I am working on, and feel what originated the inspiration, is then when I know I can stop working on it - a seed was planted. It is in the mind and heart of the spectator that the seedling will grow and bloom.
