Born in Queens, NY, lived in Puerto Rico since 1972. I've been drawing and painting since I started school at five and have never stopped. I love drawing in pencil more than any other media. I paint in acrylic and pastel. I also do murals once in a while. I studied at the "Escuela de Bellas Artes" (School of Fine Arts) in Arecibo PR where I earned a certificate in acrylic painting. I also studied advanced drawing, sculpture, relief carving and relief printing. I enjoy all forms of art and try to practice my favorites as often as I can. I had a sign & graphics arts business 4 years ago, but due to an accident I had to close and retire. I recently took up stained glass as a new hobby and enjoying it very much.
