"I am a self-taught artist of Dominican and Puerto Rican heritage. I am originally from Bronx, New York and currently live in Savannah, Georgia with my husband and three children. I am grateful and honored to be a part of something bigger than myself and becoming an artist is exactly what turned my life around for the better. As a veteran of the United States Army I did not have time to pursue the arts, but after being honorably discharged I decided that I wanted to find a way to communicate what I was feeling to the world. My experience background and experience has influenced me to see the world in colors and in light. I chose to paint landscapes because they are representations of universal truth and beauty. We all see things from a different color and light. Jerry’s has been great a providing me with good quality products at the low-price that I can afford. As a mother of three, it is great to find an online website that delivers quality products very quickly. I will continue to purchase my art supplies from Jerry’s in the future."
