About the Book

The city has been designated as a masterpiece of human creative genius and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988. Today, Guanajuato is one of only 1.052 properties that have been given the distinction of being on the World Heritage List.
The city is located in central Mexico in a narrow valley, which makes its streets narrow and winding. Most are alleys that cars cannot pass through, and some are long sets of stairs up the mountainsides. Many of the city’s thoroughfares are partially or fully underground. The historic center has numerous small plazas and colonial-era mansions, churches and civil constructions built using pink or green stone.
It's known for its silver mining history and beautiful Baroque colonial architecture. Its network of narrow streets, alleyways and tunnels is typified by the Callejón del Beso (Alley of the Kiss), so named because the balconies are close enough for a couple to reach across and kiss. In a former granary, the Alhóndiga de Granaditas is an art and local history museum with pre-Columbian exhibits.

As an artist, I am passionate about scenic painting and the creative process. My work is influenced by the subtle nuances of light and texture that can be found in nature. I am inspired by the endless movement of water, wind, sunlight, reflections and shadows ....evolving textures …and all that comes with the gorgeous, vibrant colors of nature…particularly as the sun rises and sets …..

The paintings are original works of art,My intent was to capture the sensation and atmosphere that inspired my image.

The paintings represent a Ltd. Edition Giclée Series of 20, with an AP.
The art has been printed on Archival quality textured paper. The Fine Art paper used include Washi, Kozo, Arches and Hahnemühle. These papers were created from natural fibers such as Mulberry,Hemp and Cotton for superb preservation. The Papers are warm, white, environmentally friendly and acid free. The artwork has Deckled edges, making them suitable for floating over or under a picture frame mat. They are Intimate and Small in scale.

The artists painting- sculpture and photography have been exhibited internationally are held in significant public and private collections.

The artist is a Board member of the non-profit organization Friends of Foro Cultural 81. The foundation's mission is to increase the understanding and appreciation for the visual and performing arts, culture and literature and to promote scientific literacy. Our goal is to achieve this through various exhibitions, performances, presentations, discussions and educational programs.

I am dedicated to promoting the exchange of ideas between artists of different disciplines.
