The nature and themes of my art have changed, especially since moving to Europe, thereby understanding and experiencing its art history.
However, the dominant theme of my art has remained the symbols, scenes and colours of the South American cultures in which I grew up and then studied. Please take a look at the short "Andean Culture" section to read and understand more about these subjects....
The things we see are within our soul,
not only within the things themselves.
