About the Artist
Exploring the visualization of beauty
Welcome to my world.
I am second generation Mexican-American and proud of my latin roots. I celebrate the deep and vibrant colors of life in my art.
I take photos of not only models but objects to use within the art, to layer and design each piece in a time-consuming digital process. I believe there is something beautiful in about everything, you just have to find it.
I have had a unique path and didn't always do art like this. I wanted to but never had drive or motivation until I found the area I wanted to focus on erotic art in a new way. I think people get too caught up in sex or sexualization and not the pure beauty of the human form. Once I found my muse my journey began. I was a pastor and decided that I was not a good fit for the job because I was tired of the hypocrisy and lack of separation of church and state. I didn't feel like I went into debt to be pushed around by people who had no training. I was on the verge of becoming an alcoholic. But once I left the church I lost my cravings. I guess God/the universe or whatever you subscribe to, was leading me on a different path.
At the same time my wife was exploring being a model because she felt free to do that now that I wasn't being watched. Next I grab a camera and worked my way into taking photographs for a few burlesque shows and have modeled myself.
It has been a long learning process. I have no formal training. I have been using photoshop since the 7th edition by trial and error learning.
My work is inspired by my wife's beauty, surrealism, pop-art, and art deco styles. I grew up living a pretty sheltered life watching tv and not having much social interaction. My mind wondered and still does imagining the world in a different way. I make are to share the visions in my head and to see if I can create them to share with you.
