Jose Torres, Born in Seville Spain, while my father was in the Air Force. We, my Mom, 3 brother and 1 sister, traveled all over the world. Eventually we landed in Austin Texas, the place I call home. I was always told by my friends I was a talented artist. At age 7 I won a national poster contest for Dept. of Safety. While receiving an award for this, the Principle of the school told the crowd of parents I must have had help on this because it was too good to have been done by a 2nd grader. This may explain why I never enter into art contest. Art has always been a part of my life. Being creative seeing what my imagination can lay down on canvas is exciting to me. I was married, had kids, divorced and now I enjoy my grandkids. Having my family as my audience is great but I want more. I want to share what I love with others and maybe when you look at my art it will make you smile as well. Enjoy my art, tell friends and come back often to see new art.
