"Growing up abused and impoverished in Costa Rica, I would spend as much time outside as possible, within the rainforest surrounding my tin-roof house. Inspired by natural life, free in their environment, I began to paint my surroundings as an escape into my own world of art. Moving oil around the canvas feels amazing, and my work often strikes emotions connected to a special place, one that speaks of adventure, or home." Deigo
