ARTIST STATEMENT

The 52 self-portraits are a conversation and visual discovery of my own image, with myself, as an artist and with the viewer.

Since 2013, I have taught a workshop for women titled “Discover Your Inner Diva”. 2 years later, I decided to use the same exercises in the workshop for my own development. From January 2015 to March 2022, I painted 52 self-portraits of my life with its ups and downs, my dreams, my thoughts, and my visual interpretation of spiritual classes that I have taken as well as certain phrases from books. During this process, I realized that it has also been a visual interpretation of Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey”. The colors, symbols and images reflect my life in Costa Rica since 1999.  It is a “visual journey” of my interior self as well as an artist over 7 years.
