 Art has always been something I have been doing 
since early childhood . I went to The Universidad Nacional de Bellas Artes In Buenos Aires Argentina , and The Maryland Institute  college of art . I have been a working artist for the past thirty some odd years . Drawing portraits and caricatures of people has been my bread and butter as to making ends meet . However my free time has been dedicated over these last 10 years to painting landscapes in oil .  I have taken workshops with John Buidicin , Matt Smith, Ken Backhaus , and a weeklong workshop with the  plein air painters of america . 
    My focus in art is to paint from life . I want my art  work to reflect my vision of the world from direct observation . My approach right now is to work small, and to complete as much of the painting on the spot .I enjoy a loose approach without too much emphasis on detail but rather my goal is to capture something of the light and character of landscape.

   Painting landscapes is also  a way for me to lose myself in nature and find peace. 
I do not consider success in terms of money or fame , but the journey towards mastery of my craft is my current destination .
