Artist's Statement

My work is a continuous exploration and experimentation focusing on human relationships and the interaction between people, nature, and folk art. Driven by an innate curiosity and a persistent desire to deeply understand my materials, I delve into multimedia art.

In my practice, I utilize wet and dry media on paper and canvas, incorporating techniques such as mark-making, cutting, and pasting. This results in a series of illustrations, abstract paintings, collages, and artist books.

I was born in El Cairo Valle, a small town in Colombia.

Currently, I am pursuing an MFA in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
