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
