I Create Contemporary Cuban American Art.
I feel that I create Contemporary Cuban American Art. The Ideas come from both my mind and heart. My colors depict the sense of happiness I feel all around me. My paintings are created with lots of joy and happiness, but also require lots of work and patience. I always use only the best materials and never worry about the cost only the end results. I try to put as much of myself into my work and that means I create everything from the stretcher bars, to stretching the canvas, priming, painting and creating the welded and polished galvanized frames for my paintings. I do not have any assistants and all is created by my hands and hard work. I love to see my paintings develop as they are bright and full of life…

More Time to Create Art
2011 will mark a great time for my art career as I now have in place a network of galleries that will represent selling my art across the country. This move allows me more time to create new work and also allows me more time to prepare for solo exhibitions throughout the year. In New York all my work will be sold through Marion Royael Gallery in Beacon New York, owners Steven & Barbara Riddle. In Connecticut my work will be sold through Center Framing & Art, West Hartford, CT, owner Lori Chozik. In New Jersey my work will be sold through two galleries QbaVa Art Gallery, NJ owner Jesus Rivera and La Ruche Art, NJ, owner Robert Rosado. In Florida my work will be sold through ABRO Gallery, Miami, FL, owner Ada Balcacer…

Wishing Everyone a Happy Holiday Season and a Wonderful New Year 2011.
I would like to wish all my friends and family a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2011. I have had much fun and success in 2010 and could not have done it without the support of my wonderful family and friends. Life is not always easy and most of the time it will be two steps forward and one step back. Still the excitement of following my dreams and trying to reach my goals is so fulfilling to me. It is great to receive honors and achieve goals, but most important of all for me is sharing my good news and achievements with the ones I love. I have been blessed and thank God each day for the wonderful people he has placed around me…
