A B O U T M E
Let's do a little introduction into the artist behind the art.
How old are you and where do you live?
I'm 29 years old and live with my two fur cuties Bourbon and Bentley in Dallas, Texas.
How did you become an artist?
My grandparents live in Spain and I spent a lot of time with them growing up. When my grandmother joined a painting class with some other ladies, I decided one day I wanted to go along. The teacher did not like me just sitting around so he gave me a photo, a piece of paper and some charcoal. I must say I had never worked with charcoal before and even I was surprised by the result. I changed schools a month later to study Applied Art throughout High-school. Later on, I kept on practicing on portrait painting on my own and found that it is an interesting way to express myself through a form of art that the each viewer experiences differently.
How did you end up creating Mixed Media Art?
I'm a self taught mixed media artist with which I started about a year ago in the midst of the COVID-lockdown and I love how no piece is ever the same. It's an interesting search for the right combinations and techniques.
The reason why I started with Mixed Media Art is because I wanted to provide art to all age groups and audiences.
Are you a full-time artist?
I'm an interior architect in my primary profession and I love combining my creative and design skills.
Owning my own art studio is my secondary profession. A very interesting and educational experience.
That's how I came to the idea to add home design articles to our collection. Many more exciting projects to come.
Your favorite painting outfit?
I go to work dressed business casual and in my favorite high-heels. I actually don't change outfits when I come home.
I love painting all dressed up. It makes me feel confident and good in my skin.
All I do is put my hair up so it doesn't get into my paint pallet.
Hope you guys enjoy my work.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. I will be happy to help!
