Statement

A native of Del Rio, Texas and current Art Teacher at a recognized Elementary School.  Member of the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture.  Currently represented at Pulquerios Art Gallery in San Antonio, Texas.  Featured among other renowned Latino Artists in the book entitled "Four Decades of Mexican American Art (Triumph of our Communities) published by Arizona State University and Bilingue Press.  Will be featured in a group show entitled "No Soy Ilegal, No Soy Criminal" exhibit opening February 2, 2009 at Centro Cultural Aztlan.  Two current works of art are now part of one of the top three art collectors of Chicano Art, Dr. Gil Cardenas from Notre Dame University's Institute of Latino Studies department.  Painter of narrative and contemporary Chicano Art. 

Artist Statement:  Growing a Migrant Farmworker toiling the fields of distant states like Wyoming, California, Wisconsin, Utah, and Texas allowed me to see and understand the world of a working class family, it allowed me to form views of likes and dislikes of the United States, and it helped me gain strength and creative abilities to paint a world of narratives about a lifestyle not wished upon others in a time when discrimination was rampant.
