Retablos depicting devotional images in a traditionally vibrant style.

News

I juried and was accepted into the Santa Fe Annual Spanish Colonial Spanish Market as one of the 300 local Hispanic artists. It is the world's largest Traditional Spanish Market. It is truly quite humbling to be chosen to participate in this Market at the Historic Santa Fe Plaza on July 30-31.


Artist Statement

I create some traditional works in the nature of retablos in a very NON-traditonal way. I enjoy creating images in a fun and whimsical way, focusing on their expressions to relate traditional devotions.  Finished retablos with their bright colors and expressions never fail to bring a smile.  I want people to look at them, read the image's expression to begin understanding his story and find some humor in its portrayal.

Biography

I was raised in El Rito surrounded by art in its many forms, natural and man's depiction of it.

I received a Bachelor's degree in Business and Project Management. I am employed as Access Control Coordinator for COMPA Industries, Inc. in coordination with LANL.

I will be showing my new depictions of religious images in keeping with the intent of the Spanish Colonial Society of NM.

I also enjoy creating some very non-traditional retablos showing the devotional images in a playful manner, focusing on their expressions to relate their stories. Both styles fulfil my artistic desires.
