About My Work

I am a contemporary figurative artist interested in exploring the dynamics of human relationships though the use of disrupted narratives, stories that come from dreams, memory, landscape, found or family photographs and that are depicted through a combination of realism and ambiguity. The narratives or stories in my work are meant to investigate the complexities of interpersonal relationships, especially family psychodynamics, which serve as the foundation of the human psyche.

I am a professional studio artist and Professor of Art in Drawing and Painting at California State University-Fresno
