Growing up in El Paso, TX, I was surrounded by the beauty of the desert, vibrant sunsets and purple hued mountains. My art education started early from my parents who were both artistic. As a result, becoming a student of art at an early age was a given, leading to a degree in fine arts.
Now residing in Albuquerque, NM I am still surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of the desert. The light and the culture here in New Mexico are perfect for my art. Add to that the abundance of old vehicles, the buildings that were long ago abandoned and the sheer beauty of the landscape all inspire my work.
