Hi Folks.

I'm an artist living in the SF Bay Area (in an old farm house that is falling apart) with my wife, two little girls, and one boy or girl on the way.
I make my living as an artist. Murals are a big part of what I do right now outside my Dia de los Muertos art.
I'm a mix of just about every ethnicity on this planet. But Mexico has a special place in my mind and heart. All my life I have lived in a California town that is predominately Mexican-American, with many recent immigrants who keep the Mexican culture fresh and interesting here in California.

Hi Folks.

My Mother and Grandmother are both artists, so in a way I take after the women in my family more than the men.
I started focusing on Dia de los Muertos themed art because it is a genera that remained an art for the people, and has not lost it's folk, or outsider art feel. And any true folk art that comes out of this ares will always have a heavy Mexican influence.
Before my attention turned almost exclusively to Mexican style folk art, I was an icon painter. Which is the reason many of my skeletons are posed looking straight ahead at the viewer like saints on icon panels, and I suppose it will always be that way for me because I am drawn to the sacred nature of artwork that honors the dead. And art honors the dead like artwork inspired by Dia de los Muertos.
