As a full-time artist and mama of two boys living in Roanoke, Va., I can always find inspiration in the beautiful mountains that surround me.

I paint both figurative and abstract subjects, always using my fearless love of color and movement. My work mainly focuses on the process as well as the joy and excitement of translating the way I experience the world into art.

I grew up in Bogota, Colombia, a country with an enormous wealth of color, nature, and culture. There I studied Art and Industrial Design at Universidad de los Andes.  After moving to Roanoke, VA,  I completed my art degree at Hollins University in 2003 and have been painting professionally since then. I am so lucky I get to do what I love!

You can usually find me painting in my studio with my German Shorthair Pointer at my feet, climbing ladders, and scaffolding to complete large mural and decorative painting commissions - and chasing my two boys around!
