At the early age of 12 my family noticed that I was a very talented artist. My mother enrolled me in a private art studio, where I was taught to sketch in pastels and pencil. Over time, I was trained to be a classical portrait artist.
Besides life drawing, I also enjoy creating surrealistic pieces. While in high school, I won a First Place Award for Graphic Design, and (2) Golden Key Awards from the Philadelphia College of Art, for three of my surrealistic pieces. I also received a Scholarship for summer courses at Moore College of Art, where I learned life drawing skills.
Here are some samples of my work. Please click on the images to see a larger view.
