Artist Bio

I’m a graduate from San Fernando School of Fine Arts, Madrid, Spain (1973), where I specialized in mural painting and fresco.

My works for public buildings and places of worship involve mural paintings, metal sculptures, cement relieves, ceramics, and stained glass designs.

My easel work dwells on human and religious themes, urban landscape, still life and portrait.

My works are displayed in Spain, France, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, and the Baltimore area.

My teaching experience includes a year professorship in the Central University of Ecuador, Quito, Ecuador, where I initiated the discipline of Mural Painting.
Since 1985 I’m Chair of the Art Department at Mercy High School, Baltimore, Md.

• Murals for the high altars of three parish churches and the Cathedral of Arecibo, Puerto Rico (1985-1997).
