I am a Latin-American immigrant from Buenos Aires, Argentina and in USA for the past 37 years. I live and work out of men home-studio in the Northside of Chicago.

I am a painter who work primarily with oils on canvas.

Faithful to my Latin American roots, my work takes the viewer into the
realm of magic realism and color.

I used strong, bold, vibrant colors as expression of my Latin American
roots and to denote emotions.
My imagery is realistic and they are placed in a dreamlike composition so
to indicate my internal world which is in constant response to my personal
history and the world surrounding me.

It is my hope that the viewer will be transported into an internal space
of self reflection and insight about memorable and incongruous aspects
of life.
