I have been an artist for the past 5 years. My background is in drafting and interior design. I began my artistic career working in watercolors and ink rendering, replacing my initial fear with a love of color. I enjoy mixing and playing with the color palette, even shades of grey. I have spent the last 4 years working in oils, but enjoy using acrylics and watercolors as well. Lately, my focus is in painting botanicals, such as succulents and waterlilies. I especially enjoy finding the many subtle colors in agaves from my native Mexico, which can go from red to neon green, purple, and blue, and how different they look in sunlight and shade.
