Visual Art – Ventura, CA

I grew up in a neighborhood known as \"La Colonia\" in Oxnard, California. Being the \"quiet one\" born into a large boisterous family allowed me to observe unobtrusively the daily struggles, emotions and actions that was part of the everyday life experienced by my family and those in my neighborhood. My natural creativity developed at a young age and as I matured and faced my own demons in life my art evolved as well. My love for art and literature is visible in all aspects of my life.
