I have always been fascinated by nature and landscapes. They take me back to where I grew up; my childhood and teenage years. Seeds, a maize’s configuration, sorghum, crops, landlines, weeds and how the wind travels through stems and leaves fascinates me because they are what I grew up around. Colors and shapes intrigue me as they move before my eyes, creating situations similar to human behavior, events of nature and the observation of reality.
My most recent work reflects the study of sound, the similarity with positive actions and the way that it surrounds and motivates people around it.
