BIO: I was born and raised in Miami, FL and my background is Colombian. Since, I was a child I was blessed with the talent of self-expression through art. It was as if I was born with a paintbrush in my hand, always doodling the ideas that ran through my head. The blank piece of paper was the entrance to my heart and to worlds beyond my reach. Art running through my blood and through my soul.
Currently, as an artist, I am always intrigued by different mediums of the past, present and future. Everyday, I dedicate my life in search of inspirations, motivations and influences that can make me a better artist. I have discovered that American history has a lot of influential pioneers in the art world. My admiration of the American Illustration masters like Howard Pyle, Norman Rockwell, and N.C. Wyeth, and many more, who were pioneers in their time, have inspired me through my arts.
In my illustration process I learned to take an actual personal experience and translate it into my own artistic language. I was very pleased with my work during my education in Ringling College of Art and Design and believe this is a great starting point to my career as an editorial illustrator.
I hope that my artistic inner voice and education, and continuing self education will lead me to become one of the great masters of my time. I will continue to research and dedicate my future to my personal legend as an artist and most importantly illustrator.
