Tel: 020 8455 8206
About me: I studied philosophy and aesthetics in my native Colombia and history of art at L'École du Louvre in Paris. In London, I started practical art working in sculpture, ceramics, glass fusion, textiles and painting on silk.
About my work: The inspiration of my work comes from my experiences of daily live, a visit to a museum or gallery, looking at a garden, listening to music or a poem all generate ideas. Even a walk and looking at a group of trees or holes in the ground or on a pavement there are lines that may develop into work. I am a compulsive traveller and the variety of cultures and scenes have also influenced my work
Exhibitions: Royal Horticultural Society Hall, Canning House, Lauderdale House, Burgh House, Association of Designer Craftmen at The Mall Gallery for some years and in Bogota, Colombia, at the Space Gallery and in art group exhibitions.
