About the Artist
Born in Colombia...lived in Encinitas, California since 1973. Married...
Passion for photography was inspired by photographing my family. In 2011 I spent 5 weeks in India which allowed me to see the world differently through my lens. A new aesthetic was born within me. I was hooked and continued that journey as I arrived home. Weekly I would tour around San Diego proper and photograph everything. (Note: Obsessed with DSLR Nikon D500, shoot in manual mode and use various Nikon lenses to get the desire result). Someone ask me after some years and thousands of images, what are you going to do with all those images? Well, in 2015 I was exposed to Photoshop Artistry with Sebastian Michaels and discovered the endless possibilities of using and incorporating my images into works of art. Inspiration and passion intensified. So my journey continues....
"TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFORM MULTIPLE IMAGES INTO ONE AND CREATE AN ART PIECE...PRICELESS!"
My aim through this medium “Digital Art” is to convey a personal expression more than a realistic rendering of a subject. Images are enhanced by manipulating, editing and pushing the subject matter to extremes to illustrate reality and fantasy. I love storytelling through my art!
