I want to share what it feels to be immerse -in the ocean, in the vast space of mid-air or the urban hell of pollution. Themes usually develop from deep impressions, some from direct experience, like scuba diving in the Caribbean or Pacific Ocean or flying in a small airplane over the Texas desert; others by overwhelming feelings from living in a polluted -yet exciting- city, shocking news or deep dreams. Because, after all, aren't we all immerse in ourselves? Isn't any trip a voyage into our minds and souls? I usually approach these themes by mixing traditional techniques like oil, acrylic, pastels and collage; the results can be both figurative or somewhat abstract.
I studied in several ateliers (drawing, painting, etching) in Mexico City and Madrid, Spain. I paint mainly with traditional techniques like oil, acrylic, pastel, collage and mixed media. I have also worked in related disciplines like illustration and digital coloring for animation backgrounds. Later I enriched my collage experience in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Since 2005 I've shown my paintings in Mexico both solo and in group shows, at Casa Refugio Citlatépetl, Polyforum Siqueiros, Centro Cultural San Angel, Galería Torre del Reloj, Galería La Casita and Galería Aguafuerte. My work has also been shown in group shows In Portland, Oregon, U.S. and Buenos Aires, Argentina. I've worked as a background colorist in four animated features in Mexico. My work has been used for books and in cultural magazines in Mexico (Tierra Adentro, Aldvs, Revista Timonel, Mula Blanca), and text books in Argentina (MacMillan, Edelvives). In 2015 my first children's picture book "Mi Nueva Amiga" was released by an independent publisher, Editorial EyC with the support of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (BUAP).
