Out of playing cards and magazine came to life this set of Butterflies. Their design is consistent but the pattern changes with each one. Each ones patters is dictated by the magazine images used. Three more are still in the chrysalis and should have hatched by the end of the week. These will be followed by another deck of smaller Butterflies done in the same fashion but with a different pattern on the wings...

Here are some corsages and favors I did for a Baby Shower.
The ideas were from the internet but I completely modified them to my liking, which made them a complete success with all the guest and parents.
I now officially offer the services for Baby Showers of any kind and for any other type of celebration...
Here is another Baby Shower set I did for my friend Ami and in record time. These were perfectly matched to the chosen decoration, which made them all more interesting to make.

This collection is inspired by the Petroglyphs left behind by the native peoples of Puerto Rico, The Tainos. Looking through a book containing an extensive collection of drawings, I picked the ones that looked like babies for the simple reason that they looked "cute". They are made out of clay and painted with enamel.

One brilliant evening is when it all began. My fellow artist Ami Vega and I were thinking of new things to do and wishing we had large blank pony's like the ones from the "Pony Project" that we saw back in 2005. They would have cost us $500 a piece and clearly we didn't have that. I remembered seeing them online at a standard pony size and our brains set in motion. Being a much more fine art incline artist I choose to do a Frida Kahlo Pony. Once a gain with out much planning I embarked in a new artistic adventure with the supplies around me and a few new paints. Fridita K as I want to call her is done and ready to take on the world. She will be followed by a herd of others who will be just as fantastic and in many other themes. Right now I'm in the process of making Fridita K#2......

New techniques same old tools. Paper bowl out of old newspapers. I'm thinking of sticking with paper and seeing how far I can go with it. Bowls, tiles, blocks, and pulp what else can I make.

It all begins with the simple and complex shapes in nature. One broken swirled shell led to and explosion of creativity. Many mussel shells later the combination were endless and still are. No two pieces will ever be alike and no design composition can ever be replicated. Each shell and piece used to build the pendant or pin is unique, making this collection the more interesting and special. After exhausting the ideas the rut of shells began. For now they lie in wait for me to embrace them once more with my other friends glue and wire.
Coney Island Collection 2008
A variety of findings from various trips to the beach.
This collection still in-progress seemed a bit simpler. Which has forced me to work harder to make pieces that are interesting and fun.

As a drafter I am the happiest, not that I have a problem with the rest of the processes involved with Interior Design. Drafting allows me to see a world not many people can see, there is something really special about lines, angles and curves that simply keep me content. And even though it seems a bit narrow for me to say, I could spend the rest of my life drafting. Drawing out plans and renderings that provide that finished product, even before the fist day of demolition. Here are some samples of my work.
Takashimaya Conference Hall Assignment: Using Takashimaya as the client, the hall was designed in a warm Japanese style. Which provided comfort and class all in one.

My early beginnings as an artist were in Puerto Rico they involved hammers, nails and scrap wood. I then graduated to masking tape, scissors and paper. And finally I began my masters in Multimedia once I moved to New York City. Living here exposed me to a world of availability, the art store trips were endless and fruitful.
Once I made the decision to go into design, the question now was what type. Interiors have always fascinated me and living in the city was like being in a living library. I chose interior Design as my major in college and found a way to incorporate all my skills.
