My art is created at studios located in San Francisco and Cienfuegos, Cuba typically using live models or based on drawings created with live studio models.

My art often has missing parts, limbs, or features representing my own incompleteness. Distortions demonstrate the beauty in imperfections. Exaggerations exemplify the struggle for truth. Timed poses correlate with the very brief existence that we have on earth.

The human body as a subject for inspiration and creativity resonates profoundly with me in that every day I must examine myself and face my own vulnerabilities. My work represents a practice of stripping away the masks and curtains that are easy to hide behind to know myself better and be comfortable in my own skin.
