Biography 

I have been working and experimenting with multiple techniques for more than fifteen consecutive years, including encaustic, tempera, sculpture, and various types of painting techniques, I received further painting instructions from Demian Flores during 2006.

I have worked with ceramics and various types of sculpture for four years. I have also been exposed to commercial design, layering etc., as well as some digital media. My specialization has been in Printmaking and I have so far tried all of the mediums, concentrating in etching and lithography. I have been drawing daily for some twenty-four years, and have attended life-drawing classes for the past eleven years at a weekly basis.  I have a solid base in art history and of various painting and printing techniques and feel confident to teach it at any level. I have thought private art classes, children workshops and have given lectures at various high schools and universities on Lithography as well as in Open Studio. I have also been enrolled in various art courses to improve my knowledge of various applied techniques.  I have worked as a freelance illustrator, silkscreen printer and cartoonist. I am also the founder of  “La Trinchera” art collective, a Latino Canadian Cultural Association which is a non profit working cultural group based in Toronto that attempts to give Latino and Latino Canadian art a permanent space in Canada by uniting the various art disciplines and producing continuous art events and exhibits. So far, we have some thirty-five member artists; this group has now changed its name into LCCA or Latino Canadian Cultural Association and has so far created various multidisciplinary festivals in the city of Toronto. I have also been a juror at Open Studio for the Visiting Artist Selection Committee as well as the Toronto Arts Council Emerging artist Grant Committee. I have worked as a supervisor for the International Printmaking Biennale organized by StudiosLivan in Toronto. Collectors of my work include: Former President Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Cuban President, Fidel Castro Ruz, Cuban popular singer, Silvio Rodriguez, Muralist Alfredo Zalce, the Mugrabi collection in New York, The IAGO Museum of Oaxaca Museum of Modern Art, The Madjanek provincial Museum in Lublin, Poland and Professor Rafael Zepeda in Mexico, Canadian artist Ed Pien, as well as the Puerto Rican Institute of Culture The Blue Mountain Center in New York State, The University of Art and Design in Taipei, The Tama University in Kyoto, The Museum of Modern Art in San Jose de Costa Rica, The MUSA Museo Sonorense de Arte, the Museum Boijman van Beunigen in Rotterdam,  The Cultural House in Santa Ana, Colombia, and Guelph University.
