Well, my story as an artist starts way back when I was a child drawing and painting in school. I had to do a poster for art class. The teacher was so impressed with my talent and my enthusiasm for art, that she submitted my poster for a contest for the city of Yonkers. I could not believe it, I actually came in first place. I began taking classes at the Pelham art center. From there, I was always interested in all types of art from graffiti, abstract, the old masters, and anything that would catch my eye. I continued to paint, draw, and make a mark on anything I could find.
