I am proud to be… my father’s son, my mother’s pride and joy, my sisters’ favorite brother, my sisters’ only brother, my nephews’ uncle, my nieces’ tio, my cousins’ primo, my godson’s padrino, one who loves to write letters, one who loves to laugh, one who use to look at rocks for a living, a beautiful shade of brown, an accidental artist, and a total geek.
I often think of my artistic path as a quest—a quest to reinterpret and transform everyday scenes into personal visions that are uniquely mine. The vast, stunning Texas skies and the oil rigs dotting the landscape inspire me, serving as symbols of the daily contrasts and conflicts we face. My time working in the Texas oilfields was instrumental in shaping my distinctive approach to art, pushing me to seek meaning in my surroundings and craft works that are both organic and visually compelling.
I'm entirely self-taught, my technique honed through the experiences I've had in the oilfields, characterized by a fast, purposeful application of acrylic paint. What started as a hobby to fill my downtime soon blossomed into a full-blown passion and, eventually, my profession. As my style and subject matter continue to evolve, I've come to realize that my journey as an artist is just beginning, filled with the promise of many more exciting adventures ahead.
