Born in Merida, Yucatán, Mexico in 1966, within a family of painters made my choice of path very easy and obvious. I’ve been painting since I can remember. I never studied art in particular, finished high school and moved out of my parents house in Mexico City, to live and paint throughout Mexican resorts like Cancun, Cozumel, Acapulco, Ixtapa and wherever my brushes lead me to. In 1989 I moved to USA where I lived and painted for 20 years and participated in many gallery shows and painted countless mural projects, both private and public in various states but mainly in Minnesota where I lived most of my time in that country.

I believe that creativity is the vehicle for inspiration, the tool that not only makes us human but is naturally given to each and everyone of us to be part of the universal creation, therefore it is the function of the creative human to spread inspiration not only through the creative work but with every aspect of life in general, giving an example of a life lived as free as possible from the limitations of the socioeconomic structure purely from his or her creativity.

These days I am living and painting in Mexico around the Yucatan peninsula where I was born, doing all sort of mural projects with towns and communities, and also doing my own paintings to sell here on the internet and anywhere else on my path.

Thank you very much for visiting and for supporting independent art.
