I love painting contemplative abstract art that reflects my meditations. Calligraphy, mandalas and Ink minimalist paintings to connect with my spiritual path. I also create realist drawings and paintings on watercolor to reflect the world around me.


Art Classes & Workshops


I teach classes and workshops on different media for drawing,  abstract painting,  watercolor, clay, etc.  in which I guide my students toward the source of their creativity, helping them find motivation and meaning in their lives. I offer a therapeutic approach to working with the mind and emotions, applying millennia-old Eastern principles to approach creativity and mindfulness.


Meditation Teaching & Retreats


I teach international courses and retreats on  Buddhist meditations, Emotional Balance, and Contemplative Art, I like exploring the connections between psychology, art and spirituality.

More about my journey doing long term meditation retreats.

I lead two free weekly online guided meditation groups, one in Spanish one in English, where we meditate and discuss the topic of the week.

I also offer private sessions of mindfulness coaching and art therapy in which I help my students reflect on their lives and interests, designing a daily meditation practice and a creative way of expressing their emotions. My passion for coaching was born from a decade of teaching Art and Meditation courses and retreats. I offer guidance to aspiring meditation practitioners as well as experienced practitioners wishing to embark into group and solitary retreats. Sometimes I lead group retreats where we take some days or months to explore the mind, emotions and creativity in a peaceful helthy environment. Visit my site ContemplArte for more resources.
