Bio/CV

Washington DC artist for 15 years now. Before that was in Mexico City

Multidisciplinary artist who uses Painting, Sculpture, Performance, Public Art, Video Earth Works & Ceremony, Video, Sacred Geometry, and Dance.

For more than 10 years I have been making large, delicate and intricate  paintings on paper. The texture of the paper adds a layer of sensory input with its soft and tactile quality. There is always a sense of the ethereal and other-dimensional. That may be 2 dimensional microscopic or other realms of space-time. I have always been very influenced by the delicacy and fluidity of Japanese and Chines art. I work with the quality of the water and am intoxicated by the colors.

Also known for snakes, aliens and other sculptures.

As an artist I am most interested in being alive. I explore and experiment with every angle of life and consciousness and create what is authentic at any given moment. As a human being I am full of contradictions and seemingly disparate parts. I am interested in the ethereal and the earthiness of materials ad forms.

Nature, spirituality, geometry, humor, the invisible microcosmic world, biology, physics, movement, healing, light, aliens, stones, space, Earth, mysticism and abstract vibrating strings  are recurrent themes in my work.

I also make medicine wheels  connected to certain Native American traditions. Taught to me by elders.
