I was born in Miami Florida in 1950, my parents are Italian and Cuban first generation American. I feel that I got the best of both worlds, with their Spanish and Italian art heritages as part of my life. If I had to point to one trigger that got me into art it was of all things a TV show. Everyday Monday thru Friday on ABC at 4:00-4:30 came on "Dark Shadows©". I would get home from school as fast as I could to see it, I guess the portraits of Barnabas Collins and the creepy house of Collinwood with surrounding landscape fired up my art imagination. That show was filled with 19th century art and furnishings. It started me into portraits and landscapes, that continue to this day.

Mr. James H. Hunter, my art teacher at Miami Springs Senior High School, got me motivated into my first experiences in watercolor. However my greatest inspiration back then was my art mentor and best friend, a true genius Carlos A. Micia'. His viewing his art pushed me into a friendly competition with him, that in turn opened art doors that I am still exploring to this day.
My trips to Great Britain and Italy in high school and in my first two years at Miami Dade Junior collage further exposed me to fine art and started to take some of my rough art edges off of me. I have included a general breakdown of my art career so far for you to review.
