About the Artwork
The Wind and the Violin, Acrylic on Wood
What inspires me to create comes from a part of me that hasn't changed since I was a child. My education at the Catholic University of Perú gave me the tools to work as an illustrator for NGOs like UNICEF and FAO Holland creating images for educational materials. I learned early on in my career that art can make the greatest difference in the life of a child and especially in the lives of children who suffer. When the world is hard to understand, a good illustration can carry a positive message. Today, teaching children about art is a big component of art my career.
