I have always felt a deep connection with nature. As a kid, I used to own a little journal where I would write specific facts about animals and plants, accompanied by drawings to illustrate each species. Growing up amid the expanse of Mexico City complicated finding nature’s beauty in my daily life, except at home, where my father managed to always nurture plant-life. This was something that had a big influence in future decisions.
My studies have taken me from Mexico, to the wet and green lands of Ireland and western Canada. My academic history of Graphic Design and Marketing (Mexico), Horticulture (Ireland), and Fine Arts (Canada), have shaped my artistic expression. Much of my work in Visual Arts is centered on understanding and creating compositions derived from the exploration of and immersion in the natural world.
