My formal training began in 1972 at the El Paso Art Academy under the sole direction of the late Mr. Robert Hedley, a noted El Paso artist.

I continued my art work and training over the years and since 2015 have been a student at Houston's Museum of Fine Arts Glassell School of Art.  My focus is oil painting and figurative drawing with a variety of media.

Having grown up in El Paso Texas, the beauty of the landscapes and peoples of the Northern Chihuahua Desert is ingrained in me. The art works of native El Paso artist Tom Lea have been a strong influence on me throughout my life.

Figurative drawing, capturing the life of the human form as a studio model or in their natural experience and rendering with a variety of media, is a challenge I continue to explore.
