I have lived in the Austin, Texas area since 2009, and I grew up in a small country town called Muleshoe located in the Texas panhandle. I’m a first-generation Mexican-American and a proud, native Texan. My family is from Zacatecas, Mexico.
Early Studio (2007)
I have been a freelance designer and artist since 2005 selling paintings and prints of my works. I also coordinated retreats and speaking at parishes, private schools, and other religious organizations since 2003. I also grew up knowing the meaning of hard work on a farm.
I do only limited graphic design projects today and specialize in User Experience design and Strategy.
Traditional art is also one of my passions. I primarily do oil painting and drawing. Design is my visual organization, and creating art is my visual expression.
I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Colorado, and I also attended St Mary’s University in San Antonio and John Cabot University in Rome studying Theology and Fine Art.
I love approaching life as a student, and I am a seeker of Truth. I seek to find love in all there is in this life. I find freedom in not knowing everything and promote curiosity as a lens for the life.
My faith as a Christian (Roman Catholic) and my culture as a Latino are an integral part of who I am as a person and an artist. They are the greatest sources of inspiration for my work.
