My works focus on my Peruvian heritage, specifically through observing culture, art, crafts and lifestyle in order to preserve cultural identity. I hope to bring awareness about indigenous people and their handmade art and craft works. I use a combination of optical art, the quality of the three-dimensional, abstract expressionism and metaphor. Rather than using traditional tools such as a painter’s brush, I used a bag to squeeze out the medium, cut the “threads” and pasted them on canvas. This meditative and playful process represents me as a Peruvian artist and represents the Peruvian handicraft workers, who use their hands rather than machines.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
