SHOWING THROUGH SEPTEMBER 20
Born in Bogotá, Colombia, South America, and arrived in the United States in the summer of 1980. I obtained a BFA and an MFA from the Painting and Printmaking Department from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have been teaching art classes for the past seventeen years to people of all ages, including The Virginia Museum, The Visual Art Center of Richmond, VCU, VUU, and currently at St. Catherine’s School. I have shown my work throughout Virginia, and have participated in shows in Peru, Italy, Belgium, Colombia, and France. In the past seventeen years I have serve on several boards including the City of Richmond Public Art Commission, Partners in the Arts, The Visual Art Center, The Virginia Museum Multicultural Advisory Council, The 1708 Gallery and Art 180. I was the first recipient of the Theresa Pollack Artist of the Year Award. In 2011 received the Distinguish Service Award from the Visual Art Center of Richmond. I have served as a juror for different art competitions including the Virginia Museum Fellowship, Scholastics, and Visual Arts Award for the State of Maryland Arts Council. My work is in several collections including: Sidney and Frances Lewis, Pam and Bill Royall, Media General, First Market Bank, Capital One, Federal Reserve Bank, Markel Corporation, Dominion, and Phillip Morris.
