What inspired you to pursue art?

I have artists in my family. I started painting at age 9 and went to art school. Now I’m pursuing art full time.


Roberto is demoing a work in progress.

What do you do in the off-season?

Architectural and interior design.

Do you have any tips for budding artists?

Uniqueness over perfection! If possible leave some room in your work for the viewer’s imagination, let your art tell the story, and believe in yourself!
