I grew up in western Arizona I a place called Poston, which is near Parker, AZ. Poston is on the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) Reservation. This is an agricultural area that gets really hot in the summer.
I’m an active artist member of Xico Inc, a Chicano/Native American arts organization in Phoenix.
Born in San Luis, R.C., Sonora, Mexico, I came to the U.S. at the age of three. But I will always be the Cisco Kid
My college degree is a BFA from Arizona State University. Go Devils!
I’m proud to have been a student of the late Claude Thorn, my high school teacher who suggested I pursue art and wouldn’t take no for an answer.
