I make art in a desperate, urgent attempt to open a door, hoping to discover what is necessary and meaningful in life. My heart is to find and bring hope to those living on the big blue rock.
My studio is open daily. A gallery curator can assist with purchases in the studio.
My art has been described as “pure and from the heart”, “charmingly dark” and “emotional.”
You’re encouraged to sit in the studio and share what you see.
I recently devoted my time to finish a series of abstract work honoring those who chose to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. “She Chose” was one of the larger pieces in this series. The paper for “she chose”, is made from the uniform of Sgt. Laly Cholak, a combat Veteran who served in Iraq. She Chose, was created to honor the choice our Veterans made to serve and acknowledge the moments they did not choose. The colors used in this piece represent their experiences.
I was born on Father’s Day, to my single, Hispanic, free-spirited mother. My mother would later meet, marry, and divorce my Mormon, Irish, Hells Angel father. I became an observer of chaos, violence, love, religion, race, culture and loyalty which heavily influences my artwork and advocacy efforts. I’m currently creating and exploring art in my studio in Central Texas.
I’ve been recognized for my advocacy efforts within the Veteran community by the Texas Veterans Commission, the Military Veteran Peer Network, and the Veterans County Service Officers Association of Texas. For more information regarding the organizations I’ve worked with visit LinkedIn and read Dorian De Winds’s Huffington Post article highlighting my advocacy efforts.
