Since early childhood, I have had a great affinity and aptitude for the arts. I would help fellow classmates with their art assignments, and this brought me immense joy. Having been immersed in an artistic environment where I witnessed my many siblings’ creations, I felt inspired to express what was in my soul.

At the age of 11, I competed at an intercollegiate level, and was awarded first place. I got the opportunity to travel and show my talent at a competitive level in Mexico in an international sculpture contest. I was awarded third place out 100 competitors. I went to university to study architecture, but my passion for painting compelled me to focus my energy there.

Around this time, my native country of Nicaragua was suffering a violent revolution that forced my family out of the country with nothing. I arrived in a foreign country with no clear future in sight. In order to support my family, I had to separate myself from my passion with the promise that I would one day, God willing, reunite with it. This served as inspiration in difficult times, and gave me strength to overcome obstacles in my path.

Fortunately, some years later, with the support of my family, I was able to reunite with my passion. The time I had spent away from my homeland gave me more motivation than ever to express what had been building up in my inner soul for so long. I was motivated to show my work in exhibitions all over the world.

In order to heal, the soul needs to fly, and be free to become whole with nature. Art and painting give the soul it’s wings to be free and soar. As an artist, my dream is to leave a legacy for my kids and future generations of the value of art which personifies the human essence.
