As an Andalusian-American artist my work references a range of influences from the South of Spain and upstate New York — living between the Mediterranean and the Catskill Mountains has embedded in me an iconography of natural references, opposites that come together, providing a background for creative self-expression.
I find drawing different mediums together something natural, probably because of my background. I work mostly on Encaustics and Mixed Media (Drawing, Painting, Collage, Etching, Mono-types…).
My career track spans 13 years in the New York Advertising industry with agencies such as Y&R or Draftfcb. I pursued Art graduate courses at Hunter College and art classes at the Arts Student League of New York and Woodstock School of Arts. I graduated cum laude from Mount Holyoke College with a Bachelor of Arts and hold a MIA with a concentration in Advertising/Communications from Columbia University.
My work has also been featured in Encaustic in the 21st Century http://www.schifferbooks.com/
