I am a figurative artist that works primarily in mixed media and printmaking. Strong points in my work are design, draftsmanship, and color. My work pulls from my California upbringing. I use figures mixed with iconic imagery and symbols. The imagery I use comes from my coastal town where I grew up, Catholic/Mexican iconography, Japanese culture and anime, and pop references. My work is linear, bold and colorful.
I have had number of one man shows, and have won many individual awards for my art. I have also been in number of large shows including Ohio State Fair, Ventura County Fair, and California State Fair.
Other large influences include:
-Music, (I love just about every type of music)
-the Pacific Ocean
My favorite Artists are:
-De Kooning -Pollock
