¡Hola! I’m a painter, printmaker, writer, Nopalista, and a Chinga Da Daist.

Much of my work is figurative and colorful. Click on the Galleries at the top of the page and you’ll be directed to where you can view the work. You’ll find a series of themed artwork that I play with.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my work. Let me know if you have any questions or interest in any of the work.

And remember, only demons think in straight lines. Don’t be a demon.


Here’s a link to a recent highlight about me from the Phoenix Art Museum.
