Born in Quito, Ecuador. Mestiza, I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for over 25 years, and received a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati. Since then, my work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. My deepest interest in my work is exploring the origin and evolution of human beings has taken me through different phases in my own life.
My primary form of expression is Ceramic Sculptures that talk about relationships, life, and the duality of human nature. The forms of the clay have a strong visual motion... evolving, transforming... representing the constant universal flow of energy, the intimate relationship between earth and humans, and the need of "fulfillment", "becoming", and "detachment". All of us are influenced by natural
forces such as wind, water, and fire. This is our very relationship with nature.
Clay figures and wall pieces that represent the harmony of this
relationship; the enlightenment of human beings. It explores the balance between the lines, forms, and color. Sculptures of human figures emphasize this metaphor. We grow, in a way, like trees; the older we get, the stronger our roots, and therefore the more stable we become.
Pottery explores a more functional expression of art. it is an exercise in
ergonomics; beauty in form and color.
Black and White Photography is a study of human sensuality that corresponds to the curves of the nature in our libido. Utilizing high contrast of dark and light (Claro/Obscuro), our minds are able to imagine what we desire, becoming
"voyeurs" of our own dreams. Color photography is a record of my travels and my own expression.
Mosaics has given me the opportunity to express myself with color. The infinite possibilities of color sets my creativity free!
