"My paintings are intellectual and emotional reflections of my life. The act of painting is what motivates me. Textures and drippings express events in my life as I compare my own life to Mexican traditions. Geometric, Figurative or Abstract Expressionistic paintings emerge while I play with colors, textures and forms as life plays with me."
