Artist Bio

Having traveled all over the world, I have experienced different cultures, life and people. I lived in Korea, Venezuela, Germany, and Spain and traveled extensively in Europe , Japan, and China. Visiting museums and ateliers, as well as the places where Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet, Millet, Picasso, Munch, and Matisse painted, influenced my art immensely.
