I am an active muralist in South Texas and an art educator at Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, Texas. I have participated in numerous art exhibits throughout United States. In 2013, I received a Master of Fine Arts degree at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I have involved the community in most of my large-scale mural projects. It is great to see how people feel empowered by beautifying their neighborhoods. I also have worked with my students in beautifying our school campuses.
I enjoy depicting images that speak of memories, family, emotions and history. My personal paintings reflect a colorful Mexican American culture where I like to include portraits, native plants and Mexican textiles. If allowed, I love to include these themes in my large-scale murals. However, I think of each mural project separately, I like to consider the surroundings and history of the place/building.
