My work reflects life experiences through varying degrees of abstraction.  Born and raised in Quito, Ecuador, my memories of life in that country merge with my life here, in Southern California.  I am interested in the creative process and shaping raw materials into expressive statements.  I utilize both technology and hands-on manipulation of acrylic paint, mixed media and digital imaging to create my work.
