“I am currently creating new work after having taken a hiatus of 7 years. My work varies from figurative to abstract. This present body of work consists of themes ranging from abstract expressionist to surrealist artwork that explores Aztec Inca and Olmec influences. Furthermore, the works deal with returning to my past culture and studying the past histories of the central and southern American empires. My subjects are either abstractly painted or keep to the true form of the object or person.”
