My interest as an artist started very early in my life. As a child I used to watch for hours how my uncle, who was also an artist, created his art and I discovered I had the talent to do the same. I like to see my ideas come alive on a canvas as I picture the elements in a certain surrounding and then watch how they all fit in to bring out a certain emotion. I remember lots of places from my childhood that I combine with my interest in antique cars, wildlife, landscapes and normal everyday life. I was born in Havana, Cuba and moved to the US at the age of 13. Went to South Miami HS where I won a Blue Ribbon Award at the Miami Dade County Youth Fair, where I exhibited my first work. I have evolved over the years. I like to re-create the texture of the landscapes as much as possible by mixing sand or gesso. I like to see my thoughts as realistic as possible. My artwork is unique, because it is fed by my feelings, my memories, my moods. I went to BCC for Fine Art and Graphic Art. I also attended Miami Lakes Technical School. Not satisfied with the design programs the school offered, I started training myself and reading art books. I have gained fifteen years of experience in graphic design and creativity while employed at Stanley Michaels, All American Manufacturing, Co., Sherry Manufacturing Co., JR United Industries, Venus Group, etc. I was the Art Director at Future Creations for two and a half (21/2 ) years.I have freelanced for several companies such as Forestieri Screen Printing, Sunshine Silk Screen, Maranatha Designs, Apparel and Design A La Mode, R.S. Apparel, Performance Graphics, Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Lines, Target Promotions, Impact Promotions. My artwork was displayed for six months at Gannon’s Antiques and Fine Arts Gallery in Ft Myers, Florida. Have sold 10 pieces to Rick Phillips at Art In Motion Gallery and Got Art? Many of my artworks displayed on my website were sold as commissioned art.
