In my paintings the constant topics are women, nature, and how to represent their similarities. As a nature lover, I enjoy expressing that affirmation through one of my biggest inspirations: Costa Rica, my country. I'm also inspired by religious motifs, specifically Catholicism. It's the main religion in Latin America and because of that, I represent my motherland as the Virgin Mary or a Saint.
I am invested in the fusion between sacred art and something more earthly or materialistic, more according to the natural human experience. These women are dressed and groomed in an vintage style, representing my past and heritage.
I use saturated colors since I come from an exotic and luscious place. It's impossible to divorce myself from rich pigments. All of this combines with my love of Art Deco and Latin American art from the 20th century.
