My Name is Berto Ortega and I have been drawing and painting since I can remember. I was an apprentice to a portraitist when I was 8 yrs old and have sold my artworks all along the way. I also studied the figure at The Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Ma. I also studied drawing and painting at the prestigous Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia. I have taught for many years now and have a system for teaching that results in rapid advancement for my students.
