I began my formal training as a visual artist, my primary medium being acrylic painting, in Puerto Rico at La Liga de Arte and La Escuela de Artes Plasticas. My first exhibition, En Accion (2004), featured a series of paintings capturing the movement and enthusiasm of children playing soccer. The Latin influence of my early training continues in my often dramatic use of color. The sense of movement and use of light is captured in my style of painting and is still key today.
I have had the luck of painting and sculpting on three "continents", though two were islands, Puerto Rico and Ireland. I have lived in Southern Indiana and most recently Louisville, KY. My wife and I are strong advocates of animal rescue and volunteer with The Arrow Fund. Currently we serve the needs and wants of 4 dogs and 9 cats.
