Paintings/Drawings

My paintings spring from my environment, and often, from dreams and broader contemplation of life, capturing my cultural expressions, and reflecting on life as a woman, as a person of cultural ‘otherness’ mixed with deep roots in these lands, as a traveler, and as a seeker.

Drawing and painting began at an early age, and, I was influenced by the museum exhibits I viewed as a child, continuing into adulthood, starting when I lived on the East Coast, with opportunities to see great masters from Europe and New York.

In San Francisco, I would be influenced by the Mexican Museum exhibits, seeing for the first time Mexican master painters, and finding in their work, reflections of my own journey.

Inspired enough that I was drawn to study and work in Mexico for many years before returning to San Francisco.
