I hope that you enjoy looking through my art.
I live by the sea in the beautiful Tasman area of New Zealand. My art is strongly influenced by the natural environment that surrounds me, especially the sea and the beach and occasionally the countryside and desert.
I was born and brought up in Chile where art was my favourite subject at school. I even won some prizes! However, as often happens, I didn't pursue my art interest and instead embarked on a more traditional education and career.
Some 20 years ago, I decided to start painting again and I started to improve my technique by attending art classes and courses in NZ, Australia and the UK. While I enjoy working in watercolours and sometimes acrylics and pastels, I prefer oils because of the many effects I can achieve and the greater control that they give me. I paint mostly on canvas using artist-quality water-soluble oils which are safer for both the environment and for your health. Thank you for visiting my site!
