I am a self taught and self representing artist. I grew up in the family where my mother a professional artist and my father a professional photographer. As a kid growing up I did take some art classes and learned the basic concepts of drawing, painting and sculpture.
After finishing high school I have served in the active military duty with United States Marine Corps as an infantry man. I did one tour in Iraq: fought in combat. During my military career I have thought of many things I could do when I come home. I have found out that creating art was the best thing that could ever happen to me.
I love to paint and contribute all of my time creating new paintings. I prefer to paint with new acrylic paint. I feel that I have full control over this type of paint. Many people ask me what motivates me to paint __" creating something beautiful out of something unknown is my motivation in creating new abstract paintings.
