I am a professional self-taught artist with a God-given talent to create art on murals, canvas paintings, portraits, apparel printing, promotional products and much more.

The expression of art for me is what I intend to do for others thus bring them joy, remembrance, a sense of calm and understanding. I like to remember the struggles of the past and compare them to the accomplishments of today.

My work over the years has taken me from winning the 1st Nation-Wide Frito Lay & Dorito art competition which lead to 1st solo art show sponsored by FritoLay, Doritos, UNCF and South Side on Lamar, to winning 1st and Grand Prize.  Twice I was featured in local and national communication networks such as NBC, Fox 4, ABC, Good Morning Texas, Dateline MSNBC.

My more recent work includes a commercial for the NFL Network where they captured me painting a mural live that was debuted at the NFL Draft 2018 hosted at the AT&T Stadium, a two-part segment on Univision Noticias 23 on my work and contribution in the Hispanic community, and a commemorative mural honoring the fallen Dallas Police Officers of the July 2016 ambush.

I have expanded my medium from oils to large-scale public murals at some of which have been labeled as Dallas Landmarks. This site also includes murals of several iconic and historical figures such as Selina, JFK, Michael Jackson, Albert Einstein,Muhammad Ali, Prince, Dirk Norwinski, and many more.
