Anthony R. Torres
My name is Anthony R. Torres. I am from Magdalena, New Mexico. After graduating high school, I attended New Mexico University and found a job as a Residential Counselor. I worked as a counselor until I joined the Air Force in January of 1999. While serving in Korea, I met my wife Mardia. We are proud parents of two boys, Marte and Ezekiel. I retired from the US Air force in January 2019. I grew up loving to doodle on my note books and enjoyed drawing cartoon character. I took a break from drawing for many years and decided to pick it up again in my later years.
While serving at my first duty station in Tucson, Arizona, I picked up my drawing pad and began to doodle. This doodling turned into experimenting with pastels. I found my niche doing abstract art and have truly enjoyed using bright and dark colors. After using pastels, I decided to try Acrylics and started my next chapter of art.
I get my inspiration from the many places I have been, personal experiences, and looking at our lovely New Mexico sunrises and sunsets. Of course a bit of music to fit my mood always helps.
