Artist Statement

The images that attract me and constitute the integrity of my work are those that are linked to man in its daily chores, its surroundings and attitudes.

I paint people and landscapes from remote and hidden regions in the provinces of Peru. People who unintentionally resist being absorbed by the huge progress of civilization and who fully exercise their humanity.

I try to convey in my work: their simplicity, their direct contact with nature, the peculiar clothes, attractive and full of color, the women whose faces still show candor and joy, the place in which that people live.
