I am an artist born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico but have been living and producing in Albuquerque since 2003.

I have been an artist all my life.  From a very young age I started drawing and painting learning many techniques from artists from as far away as Africa.  I started airbrushing at 11 years old and now use it as a central tool in my artistic arsenal.  I am always learning and trying new things, pushing the boundaries of contemporary art using multiple mediums and techniques.

My primary work is in acrylic but I have used every medium from encaustic wax,  to watercolors and natural pigments, to airbrushing with automotive base coats and candies.
