My works are visual presentations of my personal
experiences and how these experiences have marked my life.
My drawings, paintings, and three-dimensional works
are narrative and - more often than not -
autobiographical in character.
Stylistically, my work has been inspired by a wide
variety of sources -- ancient Greek, Medieval,
Renaissance, and Modern art-- as well as by myth,
legends, symbols, and popular culture. I often use oil
painting and a long-forgotten technique dating back
to antiquity -- encaustic -- which involves mixing
pigments with beeswax.
Recently, I have started to make artist's books,
combining my love of visual art with my passion
for books and story-telling.
I have also begun to create works with which
viewers can interact not only on an emotional
and intellectual level, but on a physical level
as well (see Interchangeable Parts or a Perfect Fit).
Currently, I am working on a series called
Cuba: Terra Incognita, related to the country of my birth.
