allowed me to create texture that would enhance the
facial characteristics of the women.
Another reason why I decided to use rocks instead of
other natural materials is that rocks represent
toughness, they are strong but they can also be smooth
and unique, you will never find two identical rocks,
same as women, there are no two exactly alike.
How significant is the use of colours in your artistry
and how do you decide what colours are used in
I love to use vibrant colours in all my pieces.
Depending on the type of work I am creating, the
music that I am listening to guides the palette of
colours that I would use, especially when I am creating
my blob pieces. The music and rhythm defines the
combination of colours and the movement that will
shape up the finished piece. Also, based on the
situation or experience that I am going through, I
choose the combination of colours for the work.
I think that colours are a very important part on the
creation, because they reflect the artist’s emotions and

for me is to be able to create new colours and
experiment with them.
My works have been defined as abstract 2D

If you could pay homage to a woman in history or
within your personal life, who would it be and why?
Well, I think there are many women that are doing
valuable things to improve the world we live in, and
they deserve recognition for what they do. We have
accomplished a lot of things in business, careers, art
and the roles we play. I believe we are at the same level
as men, but we still have to change some stereotypes
and work hard on this issue. We need everybody to
engage on everything they are good at so we can
protect and have a better world to live in. I admire
women that fight against discrimination of our gender.
Society, religion and human conflicts are themes that
I take into consideration in my works. I like to be
inspired by real life situations or experiences, which
may cause a remarkably compelling narrative in the
Is there anything else that you’d like to share with
In the near future I have an exhibition at the City Hall
in Atlanta GA, where I will be presenting my Fauve
Series in October.
Also, I am working on an outside project sculpture
exhibition with my Blobs Series collection. I want
people to remember today the games we used to play
as children, and take that idea to the 21st century
modern and contemporary art. This will be a work
where you can actually interact and play with the art
My goal is to have a solo exhibition of my works and
to continue creating and experimenting with
everything this planet has to offer us. I am always
open to new ideas and challenges, and will continue
expanding my body of works.
