I was born and brought up in Chile and I have been painting ever since I can remember. I came to New Zealand in 1987 after living in Australia for about 17 years.

Although I am mostly self-taught, in 2010 I completed a Diploma in Creative Arts at The Learning Connexion. I have also attended numerous courses by well-known artists such as Wellington water-colourist Jacky Pearson, Australians Alvaro Castagnet and Hermal Pekel as well as attending the Combined Arts Societies of Sydney courses at Kurrajong NSW and the Mitchell School of Creative Arts in Bathurst NSW over the past 10 years.

For me, it's the inspiration I gain from spending time by the sea, visits back to the north Chilean desert and the Australian landscape that ends up in my paintings. In recent years, the ever-changing sea and skyscapes from my Plimmerton studio provides me with constant subject matter and inspiration. I love painting in watercolours because of the “accidents” that they provide and because of the constant challenge. I also paint in oils but watercolours will always be my first love.
