Let's get started seeing some of my work!
Painting is my passion.
Born in Humacao, Puerto Rico and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I began drawing at an early age. I was impressed by the use of color and the feelings they evoked. I developed my art from crayons, pencil and pen and ink into using oils. I was fascinated by the fluidity and vibrancy of oil paints.
I am self-taught. I attended Fashion Institute of Technology, New York for one year. Fashion illustration was not fulfilling. However, I took with me the discipline of Life Drawing and how to capture a mood in minute poses. I took a course in photography at School for Visual Arts, New York, where I learned how to control contrasts and shadows.
I am inspired and motivated by how I feel and what I see in daily occurrences, conversations and music I hear. I use color to arouse an emotion and stir a memory. I employ different methods, working with broad brush strokes, merging rich impasto vibrant colors and lines, sparing detail and perspective. With palette knives, I sketch figures, capturing a fleeting moment. I do not conform to one style or subject matter. They are forever changing, challenging myself to be daring and different.
My intention is for you to experience an intimate connection; to question what you are looking at and to visualize personal images within your mind.
I currently live in Lambertville, New Jersey with my spouse, Peter Prorok, whose invaluable encouragement and belief in my art inspires me on a daily basis.
