Hola! ... and thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy looking at my artwork.
I am available for commissions and some of the illustrations and paintings on this site are for sale. You can contact me to firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries.
If you want to read a little more about me and my work see below... thanks!
I am a multidisciplinary graphic designer, illustrator and visual artist happily living in sunny Miami with my two boys, our dog Beauty and Chihiro the kitten.
I LOVE to draw, workout, paddle board and cook vegetarian... and of course the beach.
(and that is not Miami in the picture to the left... that is Rome! :)
