About the Artist

Although I learned to paint in public school, I took classes in both instructor and open classes at ACC and UT and Laguna Gloria - I consider myself "self-taught". I think being self-taught has given me freedom to use or not use well established rules, experiment and to make my own mistakes.

I learned to paint in high school art class at Johnston High School in East Austin. I would paint before school, at lunch, during art class and after school - it was great.

Now I have my own studio and paint and show "full time". I sell at my studio and at different shows around Austin. It is exactly what I thought it would be when I was going to school - it's great.

Artist Statement

It sounds odd but since back in public schools in East Austin, I knew I was going to be an artist. It took me a long time to get here, but I'm here. My paintings reflect where I come from and what I feel and what I think - I believe that is what an artist should paint.

Each one of my paintings has a story or tells a story. The story may be the message I'm trying to convey. Or, it may be what I was feeling or thinking about when I did the painting. I think a painting should tell a story or have a message - otherwise it is a decoration. There is nothing wrong with decorations, our house is full of them. I just think a painting should say something.

Notice, I don't sign my paintings on the front. I sign my paintings on the back so as to not take away from the message or the painting.
