My Bio & Mission

Hello, my name is JuanCarlos, I paint and care for animals in need. Art to save Lives is my motto.
My painting career began with the solo exhibit of my silhouettes at The Theater of Beaux Arts in the city of Santo Domingo (where my heritage is from) at the age of 15. Being so young and pursuing this alone I began to fear the velocity with which things were moving, so I abandoned the exhibit with the 16 of 30 paintings I was to turn in. It shocked me, so I stopped pursuing the exhibit circuit, but I didn’t stop painting, and therefore the paintings never stopped selling privately. Then, at the age of 27, I decided to give it another go, with a different approach and since then, haven’t slowed down.
Originally from NY, raised between the U.S. and a Military Boarding school located in Santo Domingo and now residing in Hollywood, FL. Taught under Dominican Painter Candido Bido since the age of 3 and mentored by Turkish/Dominican Painter Aquiles Azar, in my adolescence, before moving back to NY.
I have always been passionate about animals. In NY I went to school for Pre-Med, then changed to Biology, then Zoology and then settled in the Veterinary Field. Since then, my wife and I, have cared for, rehabbed and re-homed 30+ critters, including dogs, cats, squirrels, raccoons, turtles, rabbits, ducks, etc. and still counting.
All this has been and is always funded through my art sales. Our goal is to at some point have enough land where we can build a sanctuary and have 100s of critters running around safely and happily! So invest in this dream and help us save lives.
When you buy my paintings, your contribution helps keep bellies full & tails wagging and brings us a step closer to realizing our dream – awesome animal sanctuary!

Much love,
JuanCarlos
