I still reside in my home town of Bayonne, NJ where I was born and raised. My mother and my grammar school art teachers were my biggest influences. Bob Ross was my artist that I looked up to. Although I do not paint like him, I draw anything and everything. I like to use charcoal pencil, graphite pencil, colored pencil, and ink. As a child I won a few poster contests for Learn Not to Burn. I have a children's coloring book coming out in August 2018. My artwork is on Facebook and Instagram at Pa.Za.Creations.
