I grew up in an artist family in New Mexico. My mother is a successful painter, sculptor and jeweler. Watching her work on projects influenced me at a very young age. Also growing up in Albuquerque and Santa Fe has greatly influenced my work; I enjoy exploring Spanish and Native American Art. Lately, I have continued a theme of Dia De la Muertos. My mother and I share a great love of horror movies other facets of the macabre and occult which my future work is bound to express.
