My name is Bobby Padilla. Three things I am passionate about are my family, baseball and painting. I love being a Dad and spending quality time with my family. In my spare time, I can be found painting in my home studio. I hold a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. My experience as an artist ranges from public works of art to private collections. I have participated in numerous juried festivals throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. For 15 years I worked as a graphic artist for Wegmans Food Markets, galvanizing my ability to provide exceptional customer service while striving for the highest standards and valuing diversity. My volunteer work is dedicated to the youth in the community as a mentor in Americorps and as a little league coach.
One thing I have learned is that it is important to make time to create lasting memories. From year to year, it's awesome listening to my boys reminisce about the fun things we do. Our favorite family times are movie nights on the couch, shopping at the Rochester Public Market, baseball games, road trips, game nights with friends and neighbors, and vacations.
In 2013, we met friends in Cape Cod for a week long beautiful vacation. We all had a blast, but I also had an epiphany. I read a newspaper article about local paint and sip art studios. It was almost as if the article was written to me. After returning home it was clear to me that the next journey with my family was to provide others with the opportunity to make their own memories. My family, with the support of so many friends went to work to bring Roc Paint Sip to life in 2013.
