I have an Bachelor of Arts degree from Cal State Fullerton 1982. I also have a teaching credential in Special Education and a Master degree in Special Education and a doctorate in education. I have had watercolor paintings displayed in some shows in the past in San Bernardino. I also work in oil and acrylic. I have also been a sales representative for Talens, Canson, Arches, Liquitex, Fabriano, LeFranc and Bourgeois, and Morilla products. While as a representative, I had the pleasure to meet many artist in the country which provided many insights and inspirations. I want to give some credit to David Ramirez who provided me many personal insights and technical drawing instructions. I always admired his work and that he took personal interest in my art journey. Other artist who have influenced my work that I would like to mention are, Millard Sheets and Phil Dyke.
