Some of my father's charcoal studies

ABOUT

My love for Art started at early age, seeing my father drawing with charcoals and my mother embroidering with beautiful color threads while growing up in Peru.  I recall doing small pencil drawings that my school classmates loved to have; my love for colors and painting started when I received basic sets of watercolors and oils as birthday presents.  Art, color and painting have been part of my being ever since.

Although I did not pursue Art as a career, my connection to Art was always present during my working years and while my husband Brian and I raised our family, through evening art classes and joining painting groups.

I work with Oils and Watercolors, I love the strength and solidity of the first, but also the transparency and magic of the second. 

I try to capture into my art the beauty of nature, color, light, and what stops me along my way and makes me wonder, and I try to imprint that image and that moment of appreciation and awe so it is anchored and remains present. 

Many of my painting are images of familiar places near our home in New England or places I visited with my family. 

I am an Associate member of the American Watercolor Society and Oil Painters of America.

I paint out of my studio in ArtSpace Maynard, MA.
