I am self taught. I have painted fulltime since 2001 , beginning in watercolor. Many images of the first years were done with my eyes closed. This was about being called, or engaged ,by the sense perception that is mindless, free of image . It required listening to this wordless subtle sense and put marks down on the paper without second guessing.
Each year since I have created a series of work that I have shown and then selected pieces for a print series. I now work mainly in pastel and oil but not exclusively.
I see these series as being the building blocks in this process of becoming an artist from the inside out . Most of what I created was done in places closely aligned to native and mestizo culture in the United States and over the border.
I have created three groups that I administrate here on Fine Art America :
Flowers and a Vase Beyond Realism
Animal Paintings Beyond Realism
