"Art is the chalice into which we pour the wine of transcendence."
Welcome to my website. I am a Costa Rican artist, though I have also traveled the world and exhibited abroad. Here you will see examples of my recent and past work. On the "NEWS" page, you can discover where I am presently exhibiting and even arrange a visit to my studio or a presentation in my home gallery.
Please feel free to contact me in order to make an appointment.
My passion is creating art in a wide variety of mediums. I work in oil on canvas, acrylics, oil and cold wax, watercolor, collage, sculpture, enamel on metal and an vast array of diverse printing techniques including monotype, collograph and woodcut.
Here you can find out More about my career and artistic accomplishments.
To enable greater spontaneity in my abstract creations, I often use a monotype printing process. This allows me to move a lot of color quickly, so that I can execute my compositions with great freedom. Then comes the sometimes serendipitous interaction of ink on wetted paper during the actual printing process.
Oil Paint and Cold Wax
For the same reason, moving a lot of pigment quickly in order to enhance spontaneity, I have recently begun a new technique; mixing oil paint with cold wax resins. Building layers I can cover surfaces rapidily, paint, scratch and gouge, adding and subtracting, forming deep textures and accenting the surfaces of my compositions.
