I have traveled extensively throughout the United States and lived in Europe for two years. My paintings are influenced by my travels and are a reflection of my personality and style. My love of nature, animals and music is reflected in much of my work. I earned a Bachelors Degree from Florida International University and now spend much of my time painting in my studio.I enjoy the visual arts and recently added my photographs to my gallery. I enjoy capturing a image through my camera as well as on canvas For me, " Art is the 'great escape'.
