1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I grew up in Spain and moved to the United States when I was 16. After High School I attended the Laguna College of Art had Design where I focused mostly on figurative drawing and sculpture. I dropped out after 3 years because I felt I was ready to pursue a career in Art. I have been a full-time artist ever since.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
There are two museums that stand out as my favorites. The first would have to be the MET in New York City: tt is overwhelmingly huge, but if you take a few days to explore, the experience is amazing. Not only is the art collection fascinating but the weapons and armor section of the museum is loaded with history.
The second would be the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid. I had the chance to see Picasso’s Guernica in person there; and even though he’s not one of my favorite artists, seeing this piece in person was a beautiful experience.
