Hell-o from my little mountain in the Caribbean. For those who don’t know me, I live and work in the foothills of Puerto Rico’s El Yunque National Rainforest. As such, I am completely surrounded by the forces of nature and as such daily life is a constant reminder of the connections we share with the universe. I believe to understand those connections is our survival and our evolution. While I work with a variety of mediums and in a number of techniques, this desire to connect to the whole is a common chord in all of my work. My focus over the last year is to work simply with texture and color, without introducing recognizable icons in to the piece. It’s much the same as when you gaze up in to the heart of a tree… it becomes an abstract world of lights and darks, colors, lines, textures… pulling you in to its embrace. It’s this sensation I am attempting to recreate.
My plan is to share my process with you as I go along, in hopes that you’ll either find it interesting or inspiring or both. I look forward to your comments!
