"My paintings are a reflection of the Yucatan. My intention is to bring forward our connection to the universe using inspiration from the everyday people, to the history, culture, and mythology of the Maya."
"My work captures the rich character and personality of life. I can best describe my style as light, bright, and full of movement. I look for the story and individual personality that makes my paintings unique. I paint mainly with acrylic or oil or both on canvas. Painting is my passion and my challenge, which I strive to communicate to the observer."
