Story




I’m a Puerto Rico Native since 1985, self-taught watercolor artist, creative by birth and a learning-addict. I'm also a beach, coffee and music lover + Bohemian at heart with a vintage soul. I was born in a family of creatives, my father is a musician, my mother is a pastry chef and a sewing genius. My grandmother, the one who started this creative family  is the ultimate DIYer, crochet guru, fashion designer, among many other creative hats, oh and she cooks delicious. Since I was a little girl I learned many creative skills that I gather from all of them, I explored the ones that reasoned with me and put them into practice. The one that I loved the most was painting, and by that I mean painting with crayons and markers in a coloring book with the occasional doodling on the white space of the pages. I gotta say, I was the best at staying inside the lines.
In 2003 I had to choose a career path, I felt the pressure of studying a career that will pay the bills, because I had in my mind the “starving artist” myth. Since I always felt I deep connection with nature, I decided to study Natural Science and I became a Biologist which I love. My paintings are inspired by nature, plants and its connection to the moon cycles, having studied Biology inspires me and makes more easy my painting process. In 2010 I made a Master’s Degree in Education, which helps me impart art workshops and courses.

In 2016 I fell in love again with my old love, painting, I had lost my first baby due to premature birth in February 1st 2016, and watercolor painting became part of my therapy during the healing process. Since then I have been using art & creativity as a way to express myself in a different more colorful way. My baby gave me a second chance to be a better version of myself through creativity. It’s no cliche when people say that life is short, fragile and it can change in a second, so don’t let one more day pass you by since you start living the life you truly love.

I BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS CREATIVE…

I BELIEVE THAT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT…
But sometimes you quit way too soon, before you can see the results. It will take time, effort and it will get you out of your comfort zone, but that’s how you know that you are growing be the the creative person you are meant to be.
