In high school, I was well educated but was not fond of the rigors of sitting on a class room all day. Often I would get a pass to leave school to go out to the beautiful city of Barcelona to paint my surroundings. My very first prestigious school was the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. I was admitted into the school early due to such outstanding scores for a fourteen year old. My second school I attended was the Royal Academy of San Fernando when I was sixteen.
