My artistic knowledge expands to drawing, painting, watercolor, sculpture, installations, metal casting,

neon light, and ceramics. I am an English and Spanish Bilingual, I am totally ambidextrous, I write backwards

with both hands, and I can use my left foot while art creating. Actively seeking understanding of lucid dreaming,

astral projection, remote viewing, meditation, visualization, and the full awakening and potential of the pineal gland

or third eye.In Ceramics Art hand-building techniques are my strength. I have created my own clay- bodies and

I understand glaze formulation, I fire both gas and electric kilns, and I know about the maintenance and safety of

ceramics studios. I know how to use the spray booth, grinder, slab roller, clay mixer, extruder, sandblaster.....
