As a child, I was fascinated with painting and drawing. My mother encouraged me to study the fine arts as I grew up in Miami, FL. In high school, I expanded my love of art and was accepted to the Center for the Media Arts. There, I concentrated my talent in Commercial Art till I was accepted to study Fine Art and Art Direction at the Pratt Art Institute in New York.
After my studies, I went into a career of graphic design. Eighteen years later, I designed and art directed for major national magazines, famous commercial and trade brands, and worked with some of the world's leading illustrators, photographers and creative directors. Now, am exploring my passions for painting and photography.
