My drawing shows a girl who is a virtuoso on the trumpet. She of course is extremely dedicated, is a model to be followed by her classmates, and the pride of her family and her community.

"In life we have bitter nights and days of hunger, but to achieve success you have to persevere to get it!!!"

Inspired by: "Dolannes Melodie" by Jean-Claude Borelly

Welinton was born in Rio San Juan, Maria Trinidad Sanchez, Dominican Republic. He was very passionate about art as a child and was always drawing many different things. When he was twenty-four years old, he finished studying at the Universidad Abierta Para Adultos (UAPA) in Nagua where he graduated with a degree in Tourism. When Ani Art Academies Dominicana opened in his hometown, Welinton was very interested in studying there because it has always been his dream to be a professional artist. Now he is studying at AAADR where he feels a great sense of belonging. He is deeply immersed in the program and in the future, he hopes to be a respected artist in the Ani family.
