Painting, Photography

I am a UK based visual artist and my work is mainly developed in oil painting and photography. I was born in Chile, where I worked as a designer and also studied oil painting with a renowned artist for 9 years. I came to the UK to study Fine Art in Oxford Brookes University, and now have a BA in Fine Art (1st class) and an MFA in Fine Art. Over a decade practicing yoga and meditation deeply influences how I make art, and I position myself as a mindfulness artist, where observation has a key role. The world of phenomena and appearance, which is mainly my subject, is in constant change, but there is something in the background that exists on its own, a clear and natural energy, a primordial awareness, a truth; and when observing, I seek this truth, to see what is behind the obvious, normally unnoticed. The classes I offer in my studio use mindfulness methods to help the students develop intuitive skills, and find their own and unique creative space where inspiration can blossom.
