His passion for painting leads him to study the great masters of contemporary art, with this influence and immersed in this world decides to take the brush in 1991, paints his first picture in watercolor on cardboard, but the vicissitudes of life lead him to leave painting to continue running art, until in 2011, finds an easel in an antique store and decides to buy it, before this great piece of wood returns the sublimatory desire to capture.
