I'm a Colombian American artist who loves to make stuff up that will look great when you see it. It's even better when you can use it for your home or business. I can use this talent to help art directors, editors and agents make their clients happy (and their lives easier). 

Clients Include: SHRM, Washington Examiner, Rethinking Schools, NPR, Chronicle of Higher Education, Brunswick Group, Shot Business, NY Observer, AD Age, National Journal, Bethesda, Boston Globe, Village Voice, ACLU, CSP, RI Monthly, Newsweek, Macalester Today, Kent District Library, Baker Publishing House 

I've studied and worked in the creative industry all my life, including a decade as art director of covers for Newsweek International Magazine. My work has been honored in American Illustration 38, 39 and 40th Annual, Society of Illustrators 64 and Society of Illustrators Los Angeles 2019. I've also served as a Jury member for the Society of illustrators NY, 53rd Annual.
When I'm not designing patterns, working on a mono print or drawing, I'm raising chickens, working on my compost pile and growing food in the wonderful woods of western Michigan...unless it's football season, then I'm watching my NY Giants!
