Early in my childhood, I developed an interest in the visual arts.  Starting in 1981, I began to study the fine arts with the master instructor, Gabriel Restrepo at the Institute of Fine Arts of Medellin. I continued my visual art studies until my senior year in 1986.
While at University studying business administration (1990-1996), I participated in several exhibitions with Columbian artists Orlando Restrepo, John Jairo Mejia Vallejo, and Miguel De Santis.

In my early years, I also participated in individual exhibitions:

In 1999, I transfer to United States, where I continued my visual art studies as follows.
