ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

The first time I saw a lotus flower, known to be a source of enlightenment, purity and abundance, was in Shanghai. Immediately, I was mesmerized by its beauty, shape and movement. The idea of balance is the spiritual principle anchored in my work, and a determining factor for my perspective and perception of nature and landscape – being present and active.
