I began hand painting utensils and chairs at the age of 70 using toothpicks and wooden circles made from table legs. I’ve never been happier and my painting expresses my “alegria,” my joy.

My art reflects two traditions of Mexican culture – a blend of Huichol (brilliantly colored yarns pressed onto bees wax) and Alebrijes (brilliantly colored dot painted carved wooden figures). It is a treasured thank you to the Mexican people memorializing my return to a land, culture, people and place I love. And from where my ancestors originated. It’s my coming home gift to Mexico.

“Colores de Mi Corazon” (Colors of my Heart) is the name I chose for my art. Thank you from my heart for your appreciation and support of my creative expressions.
