Born in Mexico , my first formal studies in art took place at Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes.

When I eventually came to the United States to attend college, family pressures veered me towards a degree in business. I ended up with degrees in business and Art. The next 14 years were spent developing a successful computer business, until my vocation to be a painter allowed me to waste no more time. In 2004 I took the plunge to become a full time artist.

The last fourteen  years have been an exciting journey that  allowed me to develop a successful career as a visual artist, with galleries representing my work in different parts of the country, including Miami, Houston, Charleston, and Denver. My work has received several National and regional awards, as well as publication in magazines such as Juxtapoze , Studio Visit, International Artist Magazine, and American Art Collector.

My current series, “Dreamers” explores the idea of duality in human existence by juxtaposing different styles in the same painting. I use a classical oil technique in the figure to  render external appearance, while the fluid acrylic abstract expreses the internal life of the psyche.
