This abstract piece is an attempt to capture an emotion in its raw power: the heat of the desert sun, the blinding light of noon, the burning of passion, and the swirling madness that love can make us feel. The beads are a trail of sweat or tears, leading us spiraling down into the center of the storm.

The heavy impasto and the protruding beads make this painting almost three-dimensional, almost as if it is leaving the canvas and exploding into our world.

Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
