Barriers, of any kind, should never be erected to block human relationships.  This extends to color, gender, orientation, age, physical and mental conditions.  In this series, I tried to capture individuals free of the barriers society inflicts upon us

I perceive my artwork as stories that my writing cannot unfold.  Instead, I paint, draw, photograph, and work with digital tools to convey these messages. I work with mixed mediums, always doodling, and I often integrate my sketches and photography to create my paintings or digital art. My creations are abstract depictions of unresolved emotions, the busy simplicity of form informs the portraits of existential inquiries, and unfulfilled answers.

The main inspiration for my work is the beauty of the male form. I do not have a terminology for the type of art I create but consider it to be akin to textile collage.  By day, I am a graphic designer and 3D modeler/animator.  My fascination with 3D design has definitely had an impact on my art.  Combining textiles like linen, cotton, leather, paint and found objects with appliqué and embroidery techniques allow me to bring elements of 3D to my fiber art.  
My goal is to incorporate the elements of texture, shadow, pattern and even opacity to the piece to create the feeling of a panel frame from an adult comic book. A great deal of my pieces explore eroticism and voyeurism as well as the beauty of movement. I try to create a self-contained story that allows the viewer’s imagination to advance the visual story.  My work can be found on Instagram under the profile name @thread_bro.

Since early 2017, I have been exploring the subject matter of social media and its effects on individuals. It was social media created which created selfies for our dopamine addicted selves and it is through selfies that I draw most of my inspiration. I play on the notion that people feel a need for instant gratification as they constantly expose themselves. Private and unflattering moments are now made public through mass consumed disposable images. I have mocked this notion through my painting by recreating them in a more permanent and physical representation of the individuals.

In this Two-Piece series, the artist portrays the victims and consequences of hate crimes our society has been witness of. There is no difference between countries, as hate, misinformation, fear and ignorance have no language nor physical barriers
In Puerto Rico a few months back, a Trans Woman was brutally killed after a hateful video flooded the internet, in which someone was accusing her of being a dangerous person and even a sex offender, just because she was using the Women restroom at a restaurant. Back in 1998, the well-known case of Matthew Sheppard had an international resonance. As a consequence, the US government took action, and there were laws made and amended that benefited victims of hate crimes around the USA. Sadly, in Puerto Rico, they are still waiting for Alexa’s case to be solved and hoping the government takes action for future cases. 
This series is working as a Bridge from Puerto Rico to the USA. A way of trying to connect the situations, these special human beings, were pictured using religious symbolism. Stating that the loss of their precious lives at some point serve for a greater purpose. Portrayed as Saints that give hope to generations to come. That someday in a near-future their existence helped make this world just a little better.

Switching the roles of David and Goliath subverts the expectations of “the weak overcoming the strong” an attitude which can overwhelm the mind as we face not only this pandemic but also achieving equality as a society.

 “My style has been referred to as Historic Landscapes, and I have been told that I paint in happy colors. I find that I have started to paint events like weddings, celebrations, or just street scenes from yesteryear. 
I am drawn to paint buildings that in some way speak to me, that allow me to tell their story. 
In our trips to Provincetown over the years, I have found myself drawn to the houses and shops on Commercial Street over and over for artistic inspiration.“
