Mujeres del Mediterráneo

"Visiting Europe this year, I discovered the country which most reflected my personal ideal was Spain. An image which comes to mind reflecting the Mediterranean is one of a dry rural town with cactus’ in old clay pots, a pink clay building and with old women sitting nearby eating traditional foods. Another image is almost of the reverse, with young women on white sand beaches with crystal clear blue water as the backdrop. My trip to Spain, France and Italy is that which influenced bringing my ideas to reality. Visiting the Denon wing in the ‘Louvre’ and looking at the Islamic tile art it inspired me to work on tiles."
