“I paint in oil since 1981. In 1988 I entered the University to study for a degree in Graphic Design and Advertising. There I learned Photography, drawing, and illustration and met other techniques such a pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and Prismacolor. In 2000 I did my first solo exhibition. In 2003 I opened my own art studio in my homeland Sabinas Hidalgo, to teach drawing and painting until 2009. In 2005 “Normal School Pablo Livas” opens a Visual Arts workshop and invited me to participate teaching for more than 3 years.
