... is a contemporary impressionistic painter.  Her artwork is a blend of impressionism and realism.  "My Caribbean origins tend to show in my paintings especially when I work with indigenous compositions".  Another form of art which she works with is the creation of Retablos.  "As a native Puerto Rican I enjoy expressing my honest interpretation of the unique traditional folk art of Santeros (saint-makers) by creating Retablos (religious folk art paintings on wood and tin)".

The Cecil County Women's Republican Club purchased one of my art pieces created on the
Maryland Wye Oak and I had the great pleasure to personally present it to the Honorable
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., Governor of Maryland on Friday, June 23, 2006.  As an artist I must say
that this event, and having one of my creations presented to the Governor, was very special
for me, and is a great honor.  I want to thank author, Chan Cosans and visual artist,
Kris Crable for their support.

"I was one of many individuals who traveled to the birthplace of the Wye Oak in Wye Mills State Park to salvage a branch of the Wye Oak.  As a painter I felt compelled to commemorate this great giant that had become Maryland's symbol by painting unique eastern shore landscapes without destroying the integrity of the branch.  I created a total of eight paintings (see samples of two of the eight paintings done on the Wye Oak below)".
