I’m a first generation Cuban American, born and raised in Miami, Florida. Graduated from Miami International University of Art & Design with a Bachelors in Fine Art. My work is driven by folklore, nostalgia, and wildlife expressed through paintings or narrative illustrations.  As a South Florida native, this has given me the opportunity to explore the natural world from above and below. Diving into the environment has affected my art in a curious and exploratory way, searching deep into childhood memories.
