My Passion

When I am working with my chosen materials, I feel deep joy and satisfaction. I always have to design and make something, touch materials inorder to experience them. I split the materials into their different aspects of appearance and meaning, this represents a very important part of my work. The fusion and the separation of elements result in new things.

The Process

The process of de-construction includes the potential for renewal and transformation. This situation between destruction and creation can be seen in my sculptures and paintings. I use a symbolic form of language as well as the language of reality.


My personal history and my Venezuelan roots influence prominently most of my work. Color, warmth, light and passion are the essence of my collages and paintings.


The power which I give to my figures makes each of them a true protagonists of my life and my work. Feeling and movement overlay without intermission, and gestures create an exceptional and rich impression. The material (stoneware, wire, paper, paint) becomes something that is alive and that tells its own story, be it a clay figure or a collage.
