I am a Mexican sculptor and I was born in Monterrey México.

I studied architecture in Guadalajara and subsequently started experimenting in tapestries and hand made fabrics.

At almost 43 years old, I was inspired to study sculpture in Toledo and have since dedicated my life to my artwork.

I have been very lucky and my sculptures have been quite appreciated.

In a very short period of time, I have had the pleasure to exhibit in Mexico, Italy, Spain, Belgium, France, UK, and the USA.
