“I was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. I studied Arts in San Juan, P.R., and Valencia, Spain. I have a degree in Arts. My Studio is at home.
In the 80’s I had the opportunity to express my art painting in T-Shirts with Acrylic (Watercolor Technique), and baby clothes. At that time I was studying at the Inter-American University of Arecibo, P.R., and they asked me to make a film for them showing how to paint a CLOWN, and MY BLACK CATS on T-Shirts. I had a wonderful experience doing this film. Also, I designed clothes with leather applications, and belts for a Leather Boutique in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
After my second daughter was born, I had to find a steady job, which did not leave me time to pursue my art inclinations for many years. I have begun drawings, painting watercolors, acrylics, oils, and pastels once again. Now I have the time to express my feelings in my art.
My favorite subjects are Nature details, Animals, Faces… maybe something around me that catches my attention and imagination. I hope you enjoy my art.
All my drawings and paintings are dedicated to my dad, David, and to the good memories he left us.”
