Info About the Artist
I have been painting for over 20 years and have exhibited locally and nationally. I am a native of San Antonio and my art is inspired by nature, music, family, faces and the Hispanic culture. The use of striking colors pierces my work to capture the whimsical side of life. I started playing the violin at age 8 which has been a big influence on my work. My pieces have been featured on the covers of national magazines such as American Recorder, Southwestern Musician, Music Educators National Conference, and The Poet. I also do commission work for nonprofit organizations.

Nothing can be accomplished independently. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to family, relatives, friends and mentors for their support and guidance.
