Born and raised in the Chihuahuan Desert I take inspiration from the beauty of that environment. I am a multidisciplinary artist and work in metal sculpture, lighting design, and other two and three dimensional mediums.
The harshness of the desert environment forces people to band together for survival. Through banding together people build community and culture, which establishes the foundation for civilization. The desert reminds us that even in vast emptiness there is limitless potential.
The values that arise from life in the desert form the core of Desert Ethos.
