"Abrazo" is a dance term in the tango dance, meaning "embrace."

After a trip to Buenos Aires.

Watching flamenco dancers for the first time, I was inspired to take photographs and then paint the beautiful motions of the dance.

Famed dancer and choreographer Martha Graham once said, “All that is important is this one moment in movement.” This perfect “moment in movement” is what I strive to depict with oil on canvas. Be it with dancers or horses or other living things, I paint the power and grace of their motion, using fluid brushstrokes to show the strength and speed of galloping horses, or the elegance and energy of dancers.
