I started painting as a child and continued to do so on and off until about a year ago when I decided I wanted to make art my way of life. I’ve taken some classes, but mostly I’m a self-taught artist. I’ve learned the most through exploring other artists’ works and experimenting with different mediums. I have a background in many different areas…finance, jewelry, hospitality, social work, and advertising. You name it, I’ve probably done it…always searching for something I love. Well, I found it and never want to let it go. ART. Bold color is my passion and my vision. I let color guide my paintings and take them to a place where unrealized emotions are found. I’m inspired by beauty, fashion, positive energy, MUSIC and life. Additionally, you may see both Mexican American and Indian American influence in my work, since I am an Indian American who grew up on the border of Mexico. The idea of being able to live my life painting for a living…the idea of that makes me want to paint more and more…so I do and so I am.
