Bio

I was born in Honduras in 1991, Tegucigalpa Honduras. I lived in Mexico for almost 10 formative years and recently moved back to Tegucigalpa.

I started painting and drawing at a very early age. I come from an artistic background. My uncle was a painter brother of my grandmother and my dad is a painter, sculptor, architect & automotive designer. My sister and cousin are illustrators. I feel lucky to be part of an artist family whereat is not strange for my dad, sister and I to sit and draw together, still.

When I was a child, my sister and I created stories in small comic books, inventing our own characters. While growing up, my father taught us how to use acrylic, oil paints and water-colors. I painted my first mural within the age of 13. I created my first professional painting at age 15. Since then I have been drawing,
