I was born on August 29, 1973 in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. My family moved to Houston, TX in 1981. I studied oil painting at the University of Houston under Gael Stack, and Al Souza. After graduation in 1997 I continued making art, developing a facility with pen & ink drawings and with gouache, while making ends meet working in clerical/administrative jobs. I have no children, and am married.  I can draw better than you, so you may as well quit.
