My art practice is an integrated process of drawing, painting, and design with the ultimate goal of building public architectural projects with positive social impact.
My interest in architecture started with drawing and painting. I taught myself how to draw guided primarily by the letters of Vincent Van Gogh and the work of the Old Masters. Through drawing, I developed an interest in the built environment. I am interested in the work of Francis Kere, Tadao Ando, and B.V. Doshi. Their works combine social commitment, simplicity and functionality.
I am interested in taking ideas from thought to design to reality. To that end, I seek to participate in all phases of a creative project: ideation, planning and on-site execution. I am interested in various materials and design philosophies as they fit the circumstances and resources of the project.
My ultimate objective is to design and build public spaces with a particular interest in public sustainable architecture. As an immigrant from Venezuela, I witnessed the consequences of lack of housing and urban planning. Through my work, I seek to imagine and materialize new visions for developing communities.
