Graphic Designer | Photographer | Artist

Born in New York City as the first generation American of Dominican parents. grew up in large family with 2 brothers and 3 sisters who all pursed careers in the Arts. Being the child of two professional tailors, creativity was encouraged in the house. My interest in art started with Japanese anime but later evolved to my love for impressionist art. Like my inspiration, Edouard Manet, I like to work with the interplay of shadows and strong contrasting colors, while working layers of symbolism as well as controversial social subjects. Most of my works are oil on canvas. I'm a graduate of Purchase University with a Bachelor in Arts.
