I still have this humbling memory of when I was about 4 years old, I would steal my older sister’s school books and crayons so that I can draw and when I didn’t have any paper, I would draw on our walls and always got in trouble for it. I have always had a love for the arts, particularly the visual arts. Throughout my school years, art was always my favorite subject and it wasn’t until my Senior year of High School that I discovered Graphic Design. After graduation I knew I wanted to do something with my new discovery, but I just wasn’t sure what path to take.
Over the next few years I worked odd jobs and did a few free-lance gigs on the side, but nothing serious. Soon after I decided to go back to school and work on getting a degree in Graphic Design. It was a very tough time in my life, but I somehow managed to pull through and graduate with a Bachelors in Visual Communications.
I landed a good corporate job for a huge women’s clothing boutique, and after 4 years, I realized I needed to be doing my own thing, work on something that I'm passionate about. It was around this time I began to create my most impressive works and created La Loteria Salvadoreña, which is up to now my uttermost work of art. Like bingo, it’s a game of chance but instead of numbers, images are used. Each image is taken directly from my Salvadoran culture and was created with so much affection.
What do I consider myself?
I consider myself a creative graphic artist, who appreciates art and all it’s forms.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I have no idea, but I do see myself still doing what I love most; Art.
