Singer Julia King commissioned me to create her Album Art Cover. Something I had dreamt in the past, to have one of my paintings as a music Album Cover and even more perfect that Julia wanted something that combines photography and color, expressing the many moods  her songs evoke  thought the album- And the whole experience was a charm. Check out her website for more of her album.

We took the photos in one day, Julia is perfect with the camera and her Natural beauty exceeds from her pours you can feel her trough every gesture. Then I got to paint them and it was so fun, honestly I could have done 50 more.

Here is a Selection of the photos, with the selected 4 in the middle.

Painting Plants and flowers

Another message that I finally seem to be accepting is the world of plants, and I have so many people around me showing me plants; first my friend Emma Ballou with her paintings and magical forest escapes, then my friend and neighbor Melissa Gabrielsen growing and embracing so many beautiful plans in her life and new line of earrings Plants and Clay, my Friend Andrea Arguello from Phily curating and bringing plants in to bring more life in her house.

It seems that plants have been trying to call me and I have been so busy could not hear them ringing. But one night I just got it (31stof December!) that I need it to paint some plants into these 2 paintings I have sitting in my house. 

Check them out bigger here. They are not finish yet and I don’t really know the next...

We are all aware of how much plastic we produce, how much damage we are creating in our planet. But we still (I know I am) producing so much waste. 

It seems that is taking so much awareness for us to act and reduce our wait and be proactive going forward. 

I am very inspired by 2 artists in my community, Cindy Peace Roe and Scott Bluedorn, both of them truly move me through their work and actions. So much so that I am committing myself in being more conscious about my decisions. There are many websites out there that can give you some ideas on how to reduce waste check out

 Here in my blog I am listing some things I already do and things I have to get better at doing in order to reduce waste, hopefully this will inspire you and together create change:

Hace un año hoy, comenzó la opresión más fuerte sobre la población nicaragüense en años. Más de 350 personas murieron en el lapso de 3 meses de la mano de los paramilitares siguiendo órdenes del gobierno. Pero si estás leyendo esto, probablemente conoces los hechos, reconocidos y confirmados por las organizaciones de derechos humanos como la CIDH.

Para conmemorar un año de resistencia, estoy compartiendo esta pieza que hice alrededor de julio de 2018.

Cada trazo de pintura representa una vida caída por la patria, cada uno de ellos ahora parte de nosotros, salieron a la calle para defender pacíficamente sus derechos y nunca regresaron a su casa. "Libertadores" es un intento de representar a cada una d...

Breath in
and come to the place
where we meet.

Where my 'spirit'
confronts my 'self' 
and connects.

to share anecdotes
of each others life
of each others feelings
and dreams.

to know we are on the same path
united as one.

“Todos los seres humanos nacen libres e iguales en dignidad y derechos y, dotados como están de razón y conciencia, deben comportarse fraternalmente los unos con los otros”, Articulo 1, de la declaración de los derechos humanos.

Y así nos deja el primer artículo dándole la mayor importancia a nuestra razón y consciencia. Esta es una invitación a todos en el mundo, especialmente en Nicaragua, a seguir fuertes con la luz de la razón para guiarnos durante este camino a la libertad.

La obra que realicé muestra un ser humano fuerte, que, a pesar de su sufrimiento, opta por conectarse con su conciencia, esa Luz que nos conecta a todos por un propósito mayor.

Que el Azul y Blanco de esta obra, nos ayude a fortalecer nuestra identidad nicaragüense y prepare a enfrentar el presente con respeto y frater...
