I received my Architecture degree from the “Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León”, México, and then went on to do a Postgraduate at the “Politecnico di Milano”, Italy. I live in Tijuana, México since 1985.

I started painting since 1974, but it wasn’t until 1994 when I decided to do it professionally; participating in numerous exhibitions in México, USA, Cuba, Thailand, Italy, Puerto Rico, Japan, South Korea, China, Poland, Singapore and Sultanate of Oman obtaining several awards and recognitions. I continued my preparation with seminaries in visual arts at the “Centro de Humanidades de B. C.”. I also attended various workshops of engraving and painting at the “Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura de Tijuana” and “Centro Cultural Tijuana”. Art Residency at Art faculties in four Universities of Bangkok, Phatum and Chonburi, Thailand 2005. Art Residency in Ensenada, México 2006. Art Residency in Olsztyn, Poland 2012.
