Although I come from a Mexican family, I have only celebrated Día de los Muertos for the last few years. I've been painting and drawing Día de los Muertos artwork for the last four years. I try to incorporate different aspects of Día de los Muertos celebrations as well as drawing portraits of myself with half of a sugar skull.

I started at a young age drawing and painting with anything I could get my hands on. Then I never stopped. I always new if I could just draw all day, I would be set. Somehow I figured out how to do not only that but also how to actually feed my family from my art. From my fingertips.
My wife and I moved our family up here to the PNW in 2018 for a full change of scenery. I was born and raised in the SouthWest and made the terrifying leap to become a full time artist in 2007. Although I work with many different mediums; my current medium of choice is oil. I have completely fallen back in love with oil painting and all the seemingly endless possibilities.
A huge thank you to the participating artists!
Feliz día de los Muertos
