About the artist
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, USA in 1945. With one year old I returned to Uruguay with my family, Uruguayan father and English mother. We lived in Uruguay where I went to school and then studied 2 years of Architecture. In 1964 my father was commission by United Nations to work as an Architect and City Planner in Chile first and then in Afghanistan so I studied 3 years of Art School in Santiago de Chile where I lived from 1964 to 1967 and then in Afghanistan where we had the opportunity to travel throughout the country and visit India and Pakistan. My first exhibition of inks, engravings and drawings took place in Kabul. Back in Uruguay in 1968 I studied with different artists and since 1995 I work and teach at my own studio in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
From 2003 until now every year I exhibit my works at my own Gallery Jones Vicente, in La Barra, Punta del Este,Uruguay.
