Bibliography:

I was born in Mexico in the state of Guanajuato on April 3, 1981. As an early age I followed my taste for drawing in a self-taught way. I made copies of famous murals such as those by David Alfaro Siqueiros and in particular the works of Diego Rivera, the great Mexican muralist. This is how my taste for art began but the artist who has most influence me is the French painter Henri Matisse and his works in the Fauvism movement.   

During my basic education, I take courses in drawing using coloured pencils and acrylic paints and natural life studies.

 

At University I studied Graphic Design which introduced me to new methods and techniques. These included screen printing, illustration techniques, studio and development photography, sculpture and painting. I also covered editing programs and the methods used in digital printing. At this time, I began  to make jewelry with recycled materials such as wood or plastic objects that had been discarded. I assemble them into fantasy pieces that could be either sculptures or paintings using different media and materials. In this way I could create collages in three dimensions. I also took classes in professional photography. My final university degree project focused on the promotion of handicrafts and their impact on design.
