I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico. I discovered I had certain ability to draw since high school. It all started in math class, which I disliked, as soon as the math teacher would come into our classroom, I’d grab my notebook and I’d start drawing anyone around me, and never paid attention to the teacher’s lessons.
Needless to say I failed all my math tests, and consequently flunked math during my high school years.
One day during a school field trip, I saw the magnificent and imposing murals of Jose Clemente Orozco on the walls of the governors palace and institute cabañas, and immediately I wanted to become an artist.
My desire was to enroll in art school, but neither my mom or I could afford to pay for the tuition fees for the prestigious “Escuela de Artes Plasticas” at the university of Guadalajara. So I had to put my dream to become a muralist on the back burner.
A couple of years later, I came to the United States, and getting a job became priority number one. Although I did continue to draw a little, but painting had to be put aside. It wasn’t until 2011 that I started to paint regularly.
I’m pretty much self-taught. I like to use bright, bold, and vivid colors on my paintings.Thus my work celebrates the joy of life, passion, happiness, vitality, and energy.
