Originally from Mexico City and I came to America at 22 years of age. I’m a part time Artist solid committed to sculpture. I am not educated in the history of Art other than the studies I done at broad specifically in Rome. 12 years ago I took a sculpting class down in San Diego California and the most incredible thing happen to me. The moment I started to handle clay, it was as if I was woken up from amnesia and suddenly I knew who I was… I am a sculptor! I said to myself, this is what I’m supposed to do in life! Since that day I been trying to understand and personalized my style in representation of the human form.
