Born in Edinburg ‘Tejas”, raised in the grape-fields of California, educated as a Mechanical Engineer and Artist in CSU- Sacramento, ‘transplanted’ to Arizona where an MFA in Studio Art was earned. I have always known that I was going to be an Artist though ignorant of the role of an Artist in society, until I took college level art courses. While earning a Mechanical Engineering degree, I realized my niche was to develop Art that conceptually uses both sides of the brain. Having earned a teaching certificate, I’ve taught full time and as an Artist in Residence for more then 20 years. I have a fingerprint clearance card, and an exhibition record from Houston to Seattle, to San Diego while earning some local and national awards.
