Interests and Personality

BiographyI was born in the year 1982 the only girl between 3 older brothers My interest in the darker but innocent side of art began in the earliest stages of my teenage years. After high school I got accepted to a foreign Fine art school in Lleida, Spain. Working with different artist and styles inspired me to create a fantasy of surreal creatures with enormous eyes. About 3 years ago I started painting on a daily basis, learning more each day. I draw inspiration from my husband Matt , He has a huge imagination and his work is stunning. I have to also include my favorite painters, each one has inspired me in different ways: My brother Carlos, my awesome Mom Rosalinda, Salvador Dali , Jason Daquino, Mark Ryden, Colin and Sas Christian, Joe Capobianco, Frida Kahlo, Marion peck, Trevor Brown, Gig, Margaret Keane, Octavio Ocampo, Diego Rivera. Leonardo da Vinci, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jackson Pollock and my Art Teacher in Spain Antoni.

Hey great to see around again - i so love your art.




The art here is amazing. I love dark art. Mark


Your art is wonderfully dark and morbid - I just love it. Margaret, Artist at Work, http://artist-at-work.co.uk


Love your work especially Cubito boy with the colour blends used. What is exactly concentrated oils? I love working with acrylics but sometimes I see the colours coming out a bit dull. Your colours are much more bright with concentrated oils. Can you tell me how is the process used? Keep me posted with new work - Rosemarie
