I grew up traveling between Ecuador and Colombia, where my father used to take us to the rainforests to camp. In this amazing travels I learned to appreciate the magnificent biodiversity of the rainforests. I studied Biology in the Azuay University and learned to paint at the Ecuadorian Museum of Natural Sciences, where I started drawing orchids for the more complete orchid encyclopedia of Ecuador, with Dr. Calaway Dodson.
