Painting Method: mouth and foot painter
was born on August 16, 1988 in the City of Mexico. I am 22 years old and I am a painter. I started studying at the age of 4 in kindergarden Rubén Darío. At six I went on to primary schooling in San Juan Yautepec. There I spent the best years of my childhood, discovering new things that caught my attention.
At twelve I entered and graduated from the Santos degollado high school located in Huixquilucan and went on to preparatory school which I was not able to finish. I wanted to continue my studies but did not count with any support to cover my needs. So, to take advantage of the time, I decided to take painting classes in Cuajimalpa, in an art workshop taught by Prof. Hilario Carrillo and who also provided me with guidance to start oil painting techniques and pencil sketching. Later, thanks to a relative on my mother´s side, I was able to learn about the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. This is how a new phase in my life as a painter started.
I have been a member of the Association since September 2007. During the first four years as a scholarship grantee I have participated in organized Expositions in the Mexican State, Federal District and the city of del Carmen, Capeche. I have taught water color classes to children with Mrs. Astrid and I am taking classes in Jardín del Arte (the Art Garden) located in the Monument to Mothers with Prof. Alfonso Ordoñez who is a great person and has taught me to paint with the heart.
I´ve had the good fortune of participating in radio and television programs which highlight my participation in the program titled “Aquí nos toco vivir” conducted by Mrs. Cristina Pacheco. This year of 2011 I have received two very important invitations: one from the University of the City of del Carmen, Campeche to give testimony of my life and my work and, the second, from the Musical Group Emanuel, also to present my work and testimony of my life.
My objective is to continue studying and prosper in my development as an artist so I can realize the projects that God presents my way. Thank You.
