I come from a family of strong and determined women, starting with my great grandmother Cesarea who was one of the founders of a town named Placetas in Cuba during the 1860s. Women and the roles they have played throughout history fascinate me; thus this is the theme of my work as an artist.
Since 2012 my work has been mostly dedicated to women of the early Italian Renaissance and the Spanish Baroque. Although I am in awe of the work of Diego Velazquez and the masters of the Italian Renaissance, it is the women I choose to paint and the circumstances under which they lived that attracts me.
