My greatest passion is visual arts because it allows me to bring my ideas, realizations, dreams, and desires from my mind and imagination into the physical world. Most of my art is related in some way to the wisdom, knowledge, and worldview of my indigenous Mesoamerican and American Indian (Native American) ancestors. I am also inspired by the social, cultural, and personal experience themes present in Chicano/a or Xicano/a Art. My style is visually recognizable by vivid color, impasto oil paint, and use of Mexika (Aztec), Mixtec, and other glyphs I have learned from ancient Mexican texts. Read more...
