Art has always been my passion since as long as I can remember. My mother who was an artist, first taught me how to paint in oils. From there, I learned to paint in watercolors as well as in acrylics.
I went to the School of Visual Arts majoring in media arts and illustration, where I received a bachelor’s degree in fine Arts. Afterwards I first started out as a graphic artist moving up to art director.
Graphic designer and art director with experience in designing direct mail advertising, catalogs, trade shows materials and package design in industries such as publishing, pharmaceuticals, marketing, and consumer goods.
