Fine Arts

  in the French Quarter

My Bio

As early as the age of five, I began my artistry on the walls of my native home in Bogota, Colombia. I would ask my mother for paint to create designs on the walls with the colors of the Colombian flag; yellow, blue and red. At the age of twenty-seven, I immigrated to New Orleans. I commenced my studies at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, and it was there that I realized I could pursue a career as an artist.

Along with my use of vibrant and intense color, I enjoy painting with a palette knife for its textural and rhythmic effects. "Color is my passion, and the palette knife is like an extension of my soul".
