I am an accomplished artist of over 50 years in a wide variety of media that include: drawing, painting, illustration, murals, technical illustration, graphic design, web design, multimedia, animation, and woodcarving. I also earned a Masters degree of Fine Arts from California State University, Fullerton. I was born in Santa Ana, California and am the youngest of 10 children. My first exposure to the fine arts occurred when I visited my aunt’s home. One of her son’s was highly talented he played the piano and had his own studio in which he painted with oils. I remember how well organized he keep his studio. I believe that influence me to also be well organized.
My interest in the visual arts continued through college where I was nominated by art historian Dr. Shifra Goldman to join a special mural workshop being organized at the studio of the master muralist, David Alfaro Siqueiros, in Vera Cruz, Mexico. Unfortunately, Siqueiros' untimely death ended this project to train a new generation of muralists.
Around this time, she also introduced me to the Director of the Academia de San Carlos in Mexico City and they had discussed the possibility of me studying at San Carlos, but unfortunately, other factors in my life didn't allow me to pursue this opportunity.
Later, I was contracted by California State University, Fullerton to use my specialized skill to remove and preserve two murals, which had been in the Pollak Library since the early 70s. Moreover, while I was still a student I was commissioned to paint a mural in the Chicano Research Department, which was titled: "Our 21st Century.”
