I’m an El Paso native.  I graduated from UTEP with a BFA, majoring in Metals with a minor in Painting.  

I use elements from around El Paso as the basis for or integrated into the larger themes of my works.  Many of my ideas start from what I’m interested in and what I photograph around me.  I mash up local culture, pop-art aesthetics and hints of surrealism. Large doses of over-saturated colors compliment my layered imagery, creating a collage-like vision of random Americana.
