De Abajo Hacia Arriba - 48x36, Oil on Canvas

“My work is a combination of old and new. It is a mix of the traditional and the contemporary. Working from both ends of the spectrum, the result is my unique vision and experience of being native to the Southwest and more specifically, to the beautiful place known as New Mexico.”
