Winning, sales on every content in the world. My first inklings as an
artist were from childhood, I would make clay pots from the clay my
father would remove from digging post holes.
My art training was early on the summer of 1975, I had inclinations for
drawing, coloring, painting on anything and everything. So my mom got
me an art teacher, I can't remember his name but we started in drawing
a horse, two weeks in it was wierd for me to go. That was when Edith
Peter, I called her Grandma Peter. We spent weeks that summer draing
birds, painting birds in watercolor. Then we went on to perspectives
and sketching old buildings, she had pictures of all manner of
buildings, churches, forests of northern New Mexico. She really liked
Aspens, the tree in it's simple singular or forest setting. She had me
paint Las Trampas Church, I won the Valencia County Fair and 100
Dollars along with first place ribbon. I lived with that triumph until
I was 30, then the art flood began.
I attended school for Drafting and Design with UNM in 1996, I have
taken several art classes at CNM along with a degree in Network
Administration and Systems Administration 2013 to 2015.
Featuring a varied body of work, themed in day of the dead all for the
sake of impermanence, I also like to think of myself as a miniature
carver, or a netsuke artist if you will. I enjoy the finish works of
antler more than any other medium.
I did my first carving in 1996 and that summer did over 500 paintings,
sold everthing at the Santa Fe Flea Market, and that was it, I fell in
love with creating art as a living. I Am MADLY in love with my Wife
Rose, who I am proud to call partner since 1988. We have two Boys
together Lance and Kyle, 25 and 17 respectively... I plan on carving
till I am gone!
