Manuk Gallery is a new concept for the display of art work, and a place to learn about different painting techniques.
I am an artist who has developed a painting technique using a variety of tools and materials. Born in Mexico, I lived in California for many years and moved to San Miguel de Allende in 2015.
My work used to be based in realism and minuscule details. Today, I use all materials to express my abstract work. By looking at my paintings, you get a glimpse inside the artist holding the brush—a sensitive woman attracted by colors, nature, and the world around her.
In Fábrica La Aurora, I have created a Gallery and Workshop that will open in this month. The goal is to learn to liberate all senses in an open space, using all kinds of fun materials. Learn to paint and change the way you paint.
The Workshop will offer classes for children and “Wine and Paint” for adults. The Gallery will offer space for emerging artists and for teachers looking for a place to share their knowledge.
