Bio: Born and raised in Ecuador. After obtaining an MBA at MTSU and starting a family, I decided to pursue my long dream of becoming a portrait artist. For the last 13 years I have painted commissioned portraits and studied under world renowned portrait painters locally, in other states and in Ecuador.
