Showcasing some of the fine art work I’ve created in the past few years.
The Equality Strand
Medium: Das Clay, acrylics, gesso
The DNA strand forms a single arm with two hands holding each other depicting equality, union and solidarity across the human race because all of us deep inside are one and the same regardless of our differences (e.g. race, gender, sexual orientation, etc..) Colors inside the DNA strand are the colors of the rainbow to represent the LGBTQ+ community.
Storm Drain Mural: No Filter. Please Don't Litter
Project: Rockville Storm Drain Mural
Title: No Filter. Please Don’t Litter
Sponsored by: The City of Rockville, Maryland and VisArts
Location: Chapman Ave, in front of Twinbrook Metro Station
Local artists with an interest in the environment were selected to help educate the public about the impact our collective actions have on local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay by painting five murals on storm drains in the Twinbrook neighborhood. My mural depicts what happens and what will keep happening if we don't pick up after ourselves. The main concept revolves around the fact that there are no filters or there is little treatment to the storm drain water. The message is emphasized by the title "No filter. Please Don't Litter". It will be a constant reminder that what goes through the storm drains ends up in our rivers and the bay affecting our ecosystem.

Medium: Graphite on 100lb Strathmore Bristol paper
Size: 12×12 18×18 framed
I wanted to capture Yanita’s likeness and create a beautiful portrait for Nina to display and honor Yana’s memory.
Be the Light
Medium: Color pencil on black Canson paper
When I heard Amanda Gorman’s poem I was beyond inspired by her powerful words which urged us to be the light, to reach inside and become the solution; and be part of the change we want to see. Soon after I decided to do a portrait of her.
The Gift of Peace & Love To All
Medium: Chalk on asphalt/parking lot
Christmas Chalk Walk, organized by a local church in Aliso Viejo, CA. I put 17hrs of work into this one. I wanted to give myself the challenge of creating an anamorphic drawing for the first time.
