In ancient Greece, the muses were said to appear suddenly before an artist or poet, bringing with them the illuminated truth of a new creation. They were responsible for giving artists the gift of inspiration.
This inspiration, once thought to be something external, is now confirmed by science to lie within us.
Inspiration is more than a physical and mental force; it is an emotional and spiritual force, it is a moment of direct connection between the soul and existence itself.
That moment when creation is born within, it surpasses mental barriers to go beyond the physical plane and the real world, propelling us to achieve things we would otherwise consider impossible.
As an artist, instead of waiting for the muses to come to me bringing inspiration, I choose to create muses whose function is to elevate the perception of our gaze and motivate actions that surpass any limitations.
I decide to create current and diverse muses that are not a privilege only for artists, but that are of and for everyone in general, muses that inspire social transformation. Because, although our longing for a better society is immense, there is no other possible path than that of an inner transformation.$1,611$1,611

There’s a balance between realism and painterly abstraction using impastoed oil paint –in the flowers and the background- to add a sense of physicality and spontaneity to the work.
There is a serene atmosphere in the composition, accompanied of energy and a subtle cheerfulness through the defined use of colors.
