About MeWith roots from Costa Rica, I was raised in Miami, and moved to Brooklyn, NY to pursue a BFA in Film at Pratt Institute. After exploring various art mediums, I continued my education with a SFX degree at the Tom Savini Special Makeup Effects Program. I continue to draw inspiration from my surroundings here in Northern California.
Along with freelance fabrication and makeup effects for music videos, films and commercials; I continue to paint, draw, sculpt and design.
I refine my personal style in various mixed mediums through the exploration of the natural world, societies and cultures. The idea of ritual and worship drives much of my aesthetic as well as allows me to feel more connected with my roots.
I'm always looking to collaborate with creative individuals. I enjoy the whimsical, dark and bizarre but I'm open to all genres.
Travel expenses apply if I have to find my own ride and compensation is preferred as I would like to replenish the supplies used.
::I do not work for FREE! I don't work for the credit or about building up my portfolio with something that wasn't even my idea. AT LEAST, pay for my travel and supplies and I'll consider it. But by asking me, your just being very insulting. I have years of artistic experience and believe me, none of it was free. Please understand.::
I am also available for styling as well as art direction.
