Original, shiny, glittery, Chicano art made by us - Patrick Murillo & Kathy Cano-Murillo of Phoenix, AZ. We've been making our art since 1990! We vowed to live an artful life through art, music and writing. 20 years later, we are still doing it. We make it, sell it, share it, teach it, write about it, demo it on TV, and even sell it as a national Crafty Chica product line!

Our work has been sold everywhere from galleries and major retail chains to museum stores and art boutiques! Our pieces range from small to huge, we've done it all!

This is the site where we sell our original creations that we make in our Phoenix art studio (our living room). If you want inspirations to make your own, visit our other site - There are hundreds of ideas and directions!
