Tell us a bit about being a Latino artist or being in the Latino artist community.

Being a Latin artist means teaching the world what many people do not know about Latin culture & the Latin experience.

Address the use of color in your work.

Why do I choose for my work to be colorful? I love to use strong colors or pigments because I imply that nature and culture come first.

Green Lady Gardens is all about celebrating the joy of color. Do you have any comments on the phrase "celebrating the joy of color?

"Celebrating the joy of color" has an important meaning for me. Thank God we have a sense of life that through light we see everything that surrounds us between nature and people.

What about the relationship between "joy" & "art." Do you have any thoughts when you hear these two words?

Joy is demonstrated through the art of living and Art is demonstrated through your emotional state.
