Ruben Contreras was born in Guatemala, the oldest of fourteen brothers and sisters. At an early age he began to develop his artistic talent. He now live in Grand Prairie, Texas, with his wife and children.
The subject of much of his art reveals his passion for nature. His paintings are done primarily in acrylic, and he exhibits great skill in capturing realistic images and emotional content.
