I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I currently live in Kirkland Lake, a 6-hour drive from Toronto on the northern part of Ontario. I am an architect and I have a Master’s degree in Art. When I moved to Kirkland Lake 10 years ago, I wanted to bring contemporary art to the community. So I created an exposition called “The Contemporary Art Exhibition” to which I bring a new artist every year. Initially they were Canadian artists. We then started to look for funds and soon after we were able to invite International artists.
