"A lot of people say art is a talent we're born with but I believe every day brings an opportunity to learn something new."
"I was born into a family of artists. From the time I was a child, I began drawing on everything — even the walls.
"My father and my brothers are marvelous artists and they taught me to paint. A lot of people say art is a talent we're born with but I believe every day brings an opportunity to learn something new.
"I look at my brothers' paintings and feel like I'm far away from being able to paint as well as they do. They've always been by best example. They taught me to struggle for my dreams and to set big goals even though I'm far from reaching them. Nothing is impossible and, with God's help, I can do many things.
"With my family — Julian and Antonio — and my brother-in-law, we have a gallery in the village where we can show our paintings. They launched it years ago and I recently joined them. I was very nervous about it at first, but I have big dreams in mind. I thank God I was able to begin with the right foot and now have collectors who like my work.
"Painting is the best way to express my feelings. I've been able to paint different works of art and my paintings are all original. God has given me a gift and I'm grateful to have it. I want to continue working as an artist because painting is my passion. I dream that my paintings will be appreciated. Each one carries a little bit of me, of my feelings and my love for art.
"I know that I have a long way to go but my family is my greatest motivation. They help me become a better artist every single day."
