Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

I am an abstract painter living in Carlsbad, CA. My studio practice explores the tensions between freedom and discipline.
I have traveled widely and lived on three continents, finally finding home in my painting studio. In 2016, I earned a PhD in Neurobiology and spent years studying the genetics of sleep regulation before committing to my creative practice. This work continues to inform my aesthetic—after decades spent searching for patterns in data and live scientific models, I bring an analytical understanding of randomness and order to the canvas.
I approach painting with a combination of intuition and methodical study. The 20th century Pattern & Decoration artists, who ruptured divisions between fine art and design, serve as major inspirations for me. I strive to make artwork that’s similarly accessible, beautiful, and intellectually engaging.
Painting, for me, is freedom in action. It is a ritual and a window to my soul. I abstract elements of my past and present—my multicultural background, mindfulness practice, and scientific training—into shapes and colors on canvas. I hope my paintings communicate something healing and transformative to viewers, who bring their own experiences and backgrounds to bear on their understanding of my work.
As an artist and scientist, I explore the dualities (or tensions) between fluidity and control, intuition and strict methodology, and subtleties and boldness. I layer together media of disparate textures and contrasting colors: Acrylics, texturizing materials, resin, and mark-making tools are my predominant materials. I view my practice as an orchestration of hues, patterns, and stripes, which I blend into harmonious compositions. Repeated elements serve as a kind of mantra, calming the viewer’s mind and generating a sense of joy.

Artist Profile

Born: 1976

Hometown: Mendoza

Based in: Carlsbad, CA, USA

I am an abstract painter living in Carlsbad, CA. I have traveled widely and lived on three continents, finally finding home in my painting studio. My art is a reflection of the tapestry of cultures, languages and experiences that come to life on the canvas in the form of organized marks, contrasting colors and stripes.

In 2016, I earned a PhD in Neurobiology and I bring an analytical understanding of randomness and order to the canvas. As an artist and scientist, I explore the tensions between fluidity and control, intuition and strict methodology, and subtleties and boldness.

My art is considered a continuation of the Pattern & Decoration movement which ruptured divisions between fine art and design. I strive to make artwork that’s similarly accessible, beautiful, and intellectually engaging.
Inspired by freedom, life experiences and a deep emotional connection, my desire is to convey a message of empowerment and hope. My practice is an orchestration of hues, patterns, and stripes, blended into harmonious compositions. Repeated elements serve as a kind of mantra, calming the viewer’s mind and generating a sense of joy.
