I am Mexican artist, and I born in Guanajuato, Mexico, Guanajuato is a city that breathes culture and art. The birth place of many well Known Artist as Diego Rivera and Chavez Morado ; These artist and the masterpieces they completed in the " magical city" - Guanajuato- are show cased in museums, universities and government buildings, this sites make this place unique. Blending the heart and soul of people have lived there making their memories legendary...

As a child I was amused by other fine artist like Frida Kahlo, Olga Costa, Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Octavio Ocampo, Rembrandt, Dali, and countless others. and I was surrounded by their art through temporary and permanent exhibitions. And with the time I moved to Canada in 2006 where my passion for art got stronger and my vision to share my
memories through vibrant colors and my favorite subjects "The Mexican scenario and people" ...

My favorite medium is oil paint; because, this preserves well and last forever... with the same character as the moment the piece of art was created, and people always can enjoy it...!, My mission is lo leave a legacy from the vast array experiences that I lived; and I love to paint in a realistic manner, full of colors, and a history to tell!. Every piece of art is different, each, speak for their self!... - I believe art is an expression, a way to express what we feel and how we see the world. The beauty of art is you can be free from rules and live out side of the box for a moment. the secret for me is to follow my inner voice and run with it!
I hope that you enjoy my art as I do...
