About Me

I started painting in 1998 when I moved from Bogota Colombia to Miami.

To paint is to learn to see, before I painted, I didn't realize that everything has many different colors; I thought that the sky was blue, but when I looked closer, it has a million shades of blue, a million shades of gray.

In 2011 I participated in an exhibition in my studio, Art 9I showed a series of 12 paintings of flowers that served as the theme for 2000 calendars.  A painting from this series, Peperoni Stephan, was reproduced into 200 giqules. In 2014, I participated in an exhibition, in Harbor Islands, Hollywood Florida. I have participated in various charities donating my art work to help the less fortunate.

I have learned and I am still learning from the best teacher in the world, Carlos Augusto Pereira. I am currently doing paintings of crushed cans. I love the effect that they have on people.  Everyone has something to say about the movement, the shadows and the shapes of the cans. They have a message of love through which I hope that people will give a little more love every day and then our world would be a better place.

“In the Jewish tradition, mankind are endowed with the responsibility to be artists, at least in a spiritual sense, by creatively advancing synthesis and beauty to our fragmented world," said Rabbi Eliezer Wolf of BDHLS. "In this way, we imitate G-d, who was the first 'artist' when He created our beautiful world. So we are very excited to host this event and to showcase those who are producing exceptional art. This will be an enjoyable and meaningful event for the entire community.”

Admission to Art Bagel is free on Sunday, and $18 for the Opening Night Champagne Reception Saturday evening. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
