Mauricio has always been interested in art and had formal instruction as a young adult. However, other interests took him to an alternative career in environmental engineering which lasted 40 years. During this time he continued seeing the world with the eyes of an artist and systematically made sketches of the places and projects he was involved with. Upon retirement in July of 2015 he joined Montgomery College, where he is seeking an AFA in Studio Art. He is now drawing and painting again, and learning other media that greatly excite his artistic taste buds. These are a few steps ahead towards his long- held aspiration to be an artist.
