Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. I'm a mom of two, so you'll guess I'm always busy. Combining both job and motherhood isn't easy, but at the same time that's usually where you get the inspiration and motivation from.
I usually get inspired after lunch, when my two-year old takes her nap. This is when I got time to paint, meditate, research, and get creative. I'm always in pj's, so old I wouldn't mind getting some paint on them, so we can say I'm always ready to paint after my princess falls asleep.
One of the projects I worked on during my "spiritual brake" was my dining table. We used to have a big rectangular one, but we moved it to my studio because my baby hit her head every time she ran by. Silicone protectors didn't work, so we carried upstairs an old rounded wooden table to replace ours. I painted it orange since I have an obsession on this colour, and added brown stretched spots to pretend the circle was been pulled from the outside. With the first spots, it looked like a flower to my nine-year old boy. Too "girly" he said. After I was done, it was the coolest thing. I called it "Sun Spots".
I never grew up at all. A playful, incurably hopeful spirit of a child still lives me and sets himself free through my art. Still amused by everything around, my spirit filters my everyday, present and past experiences through an almost spiritual process where all the elements arrange themselves into abstract compositions. These compositions express and show feelings and sensations as I perceive them, not in the way a photographic camera does. Colours, shapes, textures, sound, movement, and the language behind them...They all turn into layers of paper and vinyl that cover and uncover at the same time through little "windows" that reveal a background, allowing the viewer to penetrate and travel through them, in and out, and to inquire about what's hidden behind them. All this process allows me to rediscover myself everytime I create, on and on, in a constant evolution and search for myself.
Welcome home and please be patient with my grammar...English is my second language! You can write to me in Spanish as well. See you around !
