STATEMENT I am a Nicaraguan born artist currently residing in Wynwood Miami USA. I migrated the the US with my brother and sister at the age of 3 with a single mother escaping the Sandinista Revolution. My works represent women of various cultures who wear headdresses as a symbol of power and importance. Influenced by the lines and forms in architecture the headdresses are hand drawn in an abstract way using a mix of free-styled forms and rulers as well as a magnifying glass for extreme detail. I like to shine light on roles of different women within various societies worldwide. In past cultures, a crown gave worth to an individual, it indicated their wealth and defined their influence within that society regardless of their gender or race. I want women to question their own identity within their current society. Every woman wears a crown if she were only to be aware of herself and her own powerful beauty. I studied Interior Architecture and Design at the Academy of Art University and Marketing at Columbia College in Chicago. I started an art collective and artist residency in Wynwood Miami in 2012 called Viophilia as a artistic sanctuary for artists to work intensively on their craft. I have curated numerous art shows as well as worked on various projects from site renderings, interior renovations, public art murals and lastly designed and constructed a home in Nicaragua. My work has been part of numerous exhibitions, displayed at the Baker Museum in Naples Florida and is part of numerous private collections.
