Luis dreamed of becoming an artist as a very young child. But coming from a big family he had to go to work at a young age. His dream of Fine Arts in college never came true. The lack of a formal education did not hinder his desire to do his art. He lives a simple life but his dream for his art is far from simple. Hard work followed by success has been the pattern of his life.
