Biography

Born and raised in Mexico City, but recently moved to California. My driving passions have always been art and animals. I remember my father calling me and my twin sister over as a very young child to watch nature documentaries with him. What I saw and learned about on television I then took to paper. As I grew older, art became more of a focus, but I never lost my love for drawing animals and learning about nature. I ultimately chose art over science when I attended art school, but the natural world is still my chief subject matter and source of inspiration in my art.
