Award Winning Tapestries

“My artwork contains completely defined forms, whose personalities, iconographies and symbols take shape from magical realism.”

 

“Color in my work serves as
one of the main ways transmit a message, an intimate contact with oneself and with the spectator. Color is a powerful wave of energy, light and depth in every section of my work.”
