I was born in Seville, Spain, I was interested in Arts from an early age. After attending the School of Arts in Seville I established a studio along with my brother Juan Antonio. In my studio I produced oil paintings as well as small mosaics. My subjects were mostly rooted in the scenes from my upbringing – lush country sides, regal religious figures, and bright Moorish architecture. Murillo, Velazquez, Sorolla, Jimenez Aranda, among others, are my favorite Spanish artists. I copied their works as part of my artistic training. In 2002, I moved to Austin, Texas, and set up my own studio here. The subjects of my oil paintings are mostly landscapes, city architecture, still life, children portraits and Mediterranean scenes. I paint from life as well as from photographs. ?
