My artworks are explorations of subjects that intrigue me. This curiosity materializes through artistic creations that mainly focuses on sculptural forms. Having Cuban origin and Italian influences, multi-cultural Miami has been the perfect ambiance for me to flourish. I work in different art disciplines from jewelry to sculpture, and enjoy each creative process. I am fascinated with the visual effects created by the interaction of Earth’s elements and time. Many of my creations are abstract representations of nature, and are closely related to geology. Striving to make artworks that combine grace and emotional relevance fulfills my every day.
