Acrylic on canvas.


In a stylistic amalgam of Pop and folk, abstract and figurative, I take inspiration from an alternative upbringing where I closely connected with the natural landscape around me. Born and raised in Cuba shaped my perspective on nature and how humans interact with land, animals and each other. I employ a Naïve Folk-Art style to explore questions of identity, love, relationship and environment in our society. My paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. I make personal women’s experiences serious subjects for art, with intense emotional content, powerful and intimate narratives. Greatly influenced by modern masters from Cezanne, Henri Matisse to Frida Kahlo
