This is the latest completed artwork for the Monarch Series that I have been working on out of my art studio in Wynwood. The series focuses on combination between nature and royalty. This particular artwork titled "Transformation" lends its overall form and design to the gold butterfly chrysalis and the concept is derived from the metamorphic process of our inner beingRead More

Hadid's death had an impact on me instantly as I was hoping to one day meet her. This artwork is tribute that incorporates some of the elements of her own building designs including her 1000 Museum building to be completed in Miami 2018.Read More

Sacred Spring Series
Exhibited at Baker Museum in Naples Florida 2014. Currently at Silent Art Auction 49 for Yellowstone Art Museum on March 4, 2017.
“Into the Light” was inspired by the independent film Nena, directed by my friend Christi Arce. The movie follows a young girl who is molested by her father until she finally breaks free and moves on to a brighter future. My piece explores the concept of moving forward in life despite past circumstances. In the drawing, the woman faces the sun—the light. Her headdress is taller than before because she overcame the trials and tribulations of something young girls have experienced throughout the world. It was crucial to show her resilience—how resilient all women can be—so while the gesture of her head is strong, her face is gentle and at peace.

Sitting here writing my blog post at about 6:21am not because I am up that early but because I sleep that late. The pursuit is endless and I cannot find the end to this path I am on. I search for the answers in my dreams hoping that they will reveal some memory as to why I cannot sleep.
I imagine I was cursed at a young age to stay restless. So here we are once again chasing dreams hoping that once my eyes close I'll find that infinite paradise somewhere between the REM and the morning light.
The sacred paradise that haunts our ambitions and holds on to tight to our waking life. When we will ever reach success when the day never meets the night. That late night that serenades thoughts of a passionate youth when time never seemed to fade away, now we find ourselves chasing light into the smokey distance with no end in sight.Read More
