Thank you for taking the time out to read this. There are several things I would like you to learn about me. What I'm pursuing, How I got started, and what my goals are in life.
To begin with, I was born in Miami, Florida on the 6th of March, 1985. I live in the city of Tampa, Florida where we are best known for Cigars and the historic Ybor City. Fortunate for me, I discovered my God given talent at a very young age so I've always been into art, and have been drawing since I was between the ages of 4 and 5 years old. Whatever I was able to get my hands on, whether It was crayons, markers, or pencils, I would create some form of art with it. During high school and college is when my love for art cultivated and eventually my drawing skills ameliorated to a more desirable state and my interest grew more towards realism in my college years, mainly portraits.
My goals in life has always been to become an artist, whether it was as a photographer, an illustrator, graphic designer, web designer, the list goes on. Painting was not my favorite thing to do, so that was out the picture. I chose to go with graphic design for couple of reasons. First, my high school teacher introduced the graphic design field to the class and I liked it. Not to brag but, I was his strongest student and he saw a lot potential in me. I had a high interest in acquiring more knowledge about the field. Secondly, I love computers. Art and computers = graphic design. Photography is another passion of mine and I've been shooting professionally for 6 years now. It is another form of art that fascinates me. Pictures tell stories, they have meaning, they capture memorable moments.
I have some of my early drawings and paintings below so take a look. For ART is a beautiful thing.
Thank you for visiting!
