Born in the Los Angeles area and here to stay. Received my formal art education at Rio Hondo College in Whittier , CA and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena , CA. Graduated from ACCD in August, 1992 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree. Have been here in my studio painting and drawing ever since, and will continue to do so.


Many have called me a Mexican Expressionist. My primary influences are indeed the Mexican Muralists, particularly David Alfaro Siquerios and Jose Clemente Orozco. The German Expressionists also made a deep and lasting impression on me, most notably Kathe Kollwitz and Oskar Kokoshka. Also superhero comic book art of the 60’s and 70’s have made their way into my particular muse. Other favorite painters of mine include Henri Matisse, Alexander Calder, Joan Miro, Wilfredo Lam, Jean Dubuffet, Egon Schiele, Pablo Picasso, Amadeo Modigliani, Jean Michel Basquiat and many others.
