About the Authors

Eleazar Ruiz

Eleazar was born and raised in the Dominican Republic where he discovered his love for creative arts and vibrant colors. In addition to creative arts, Eleazar has deep interest in theology, so he attended Bible college in 2010 to pursue a bachelor in theological studies.

He has seven years of experience working simultaneously in the worlds of freelance, in-house teams, and design firms. In his professional career, he has done everything from leading design teams to being the only in-house designer, including art directing for a group of sixteen churches with an online audience of millions, a publishing company, and a record label.
