Oil on Canvas




Born in Mexico, my formation years were spent absorbing the rich artistic traditions of Latin America. My first formal studies in art took place at “La Esmeralda”, the famous school founded by Fridah Khalo and Diego Rivera. In the eighties I moved to the United States to attend college, at the University of Texas, where I obtained degrees in Art and Business. It was until 2004 I left the world of Business to become fully devoted to my career as an artist. After exploring different forms of expression I have found my voice in a style with two main branches: Contemporary Figurative and Abstract. The confluence of opposing currents excites my artistic sensibility. I love the intrinsic value of traditional representation,and strive for excellence and craftsmanship in my own work. I look to avoid, however, the redundant . My style is a hybrid of realism, minimalist cool, and contemporary edge.
