I enjoy free style painting never really knowing what will happen. Watercolor surprises me every time. You have to be patient You can’t control the water clouds or the little textures.

New Project – Around the World

From the perfume bottles of Egypt to Mexico’s ceramics, there’s a whole world of texture, color, glazing techniques, stories and PEOPLE. With this project I want to improve my drawing and explore culture.

I’ve been building a collection called around the world. I have samples of homes, celebrations, instruments, animals, food and traditions. I’m Mexican American so I want to start with my culture. In December I want to foucs on Christmas. I want to paint food, pinatas and….

So creative exploration meets culture? Lets do this.
