I created a second blog called Ooodle Doodle Smudge but note - I will keep this one and will continue to post lovely paintings. My new blog is about discussions expressing ourselves and about art. I will be giving art lessons - it's in the works once I get my video camera. But for now I will discuss about the workshop and what I will be teaching. If you have any questions in regards to the workshop please by all means, don't hesitate to ask!

New paintings on wood boxes and wood panels!

Blending in quite nicely Too!!

Acrylic on wood box

5x15 3 inches deep

A bit about me!

As a Puerto Rican growing up in Alphabet City on the lower east side of Manhattan, I was inspired by the art around me. I have always wanted to be an artist. My mother used to take me around to places where I could see street vendors selling their art. I could see art through the gallery windows. I would drink up the art in children’s books, but mostly I found my art in my own imagination. I would sit in the park and imagine Roads in the sky. I would ride across the ocean on a fish bird. I would bring things to life and I would give them a soul. After attending the High School of Art and Design I went to F.I.T. where I majored in illustration, fine arts and toy design. I have dabbled in the toy industry and worked as an illustrator but I find that creatively home is where all the fun begins - at my drawing table letting my mind wander while my brush documents on canvas.

I’m shading in quite nicely
