I was born in a little town called Popayan in Colombia. We moved to the United States when I was 3 years of age to Pittsburgh. Though I grew up in the U.S., the art of Colombia and South America has always been an inspiration to me. I always enjoyed the magic realism and transcendence aspect of the art.
As a result, in my works I try to explore the uncanniness of our existence in this world and universe. It is a search for meaning as well as an expression. My hope is that it will reach viewers in some way or other.
