Coming from a poor upbringing in Uruguay, a small country in South America, I relate to poverty and hunger. I was homeless a couple of years ago, and I understand the desperation of being a woman without a roof over your head. This is why I paint images of homeless women in an impressionist abstract manner. I call my process spontaneous realism. My work is about using simple texture, line, color, shape, space, and form to create emotions. These works are a reminder that in a country as large and the United States, many homeless women are treated like street furniture, ignored, and unnoticed.
Diagonal Grid Fest is a non-representational painting that is experimentation in abstract geometry. The materials used include acrylic paints, on stretched cotton gallery-wrapped canvas.
Diagonal Grid Feast is part of my interior design collection.
