I was born in Michoacan, Mexico & raised in California. I spent my summers with family in Mexico. I have always been inspired by the bright, bold colors of my land. I began playing with clay in 1988, and then followed with stained glass, glass fusing and I fell in love with creating artwork. I moved to AZ in 1991 and again fell in love with my surroundings, especially the wildlife. My favorite are quails and javelina. I create lucky javelina magnets out of clay so people can take a little piece of Ajo with them, these little guys are scattered all around the globe and are adorable!
