Goals: My dream has come true and I have been in the process of starting an art gallery/school for the children of Piñones-Loiza, PR (the municipality with the lowest income per family on the island). I plan for artists to educate them in 1-2 week workshops and have children and artists se inll their products in the gallery... Education and a future for the children while having fun, training in the arts, business and marketing.
My favorite Artists are Klimt, Chagall, Egon Shiele, Cezanne, S. Goodman, Diebenkorn, Sargent, Prendergast, Modigliani . Life has challenges, colors and fluidity surrounding us, waiting to be noticed, captured. The images I create, offer me this opportunity, to savor it and help others experience this.
