"Past the near meadows, over the still stream,
Up the hill-side; and now 'tis buried deep
In the next valley-glades:
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
Fled is that music:—Do I wake
J. Keats, "Ode to a Nightingale"
I started my journey early in my youth in Spain. I had always felt the need to create since little, and not too long before finishing school, I decided to study Fine Art at University. For several years I didn't feel satisfied enough with my knowledge of painting and its techniques, so I took as many classes as possible; workshops, painting tutorials,... and countless hours of sketching and practicing that would shape my career as an oil painter.
Velázquez, J. S. Sargent, and J. Sorolla are some of the masters that truly impacted me and have allowed me to develop my style of painting. A memory repeats in my mind; as I walked into the vast room where Las Meninas was being shown, the overwhelming beauty and magnificence truly moved something from within.
Continuously inspired by nature, light, and folklore tales, my impressionism approach brings a fantasy-like feel to everyday subjects; always realistic, yet dreamy- and I believe that it should evoke a sense of nostalgia in the observer.
This creative freedom was made possible by the support and encouragement of my loving partner Arden, who has helped me stay focused and believed in me throughout the years.
We happily reside in California with our two kitties.
