Corner Market, 2018
Mixed media: photograph and acrylics on canvas
I grew up in the Seattle Washington are and I studied art at Central Washington University and received my Bachelor’s degree in Studio Arts in 2010. I come from a diverse background of Mexican and Middle Eastern heritage, and that is part of the reason my art and style has so much variety. From an early age I would look through the art books, and be captivated by the colors and movement within the pictures. Monet, Van Gogh, and Picasso were artists who inspired me and influenced my impressionistic style. With everything I do I have always been drawn to bold colors and bright lights, which is evident within my work. Through the brushstrokes of paint I can express what I cannot always say.
