I was born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico, where I was exposed to art and drawing at an early age. Coming from a family of painters it wasnīt difficult for me to follow this path. I hold a bachelorīs degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art, in Baltimore, Maryland. Iīve worked for several editorials in Puerto Rico, mainly in educational books. Iīve done some cartoons and advertising illustration too.
I went to art school to major in illustration, although Iīve always had a passion for painting. My education in illustration is now reflected in my painting, as it reflects the rendering of detail; and that to being myself a perfectionist, it comes to this photo realistic painting. Enjoy!
