In 1987, I received a Graduate Certificate in Fine Arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

I am the recipient of the 2012 Fellowship in painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. My work was recently published in the magazine, Studio Visit, Vol. 16 as well the New American Paintings, Issue 98 ¬¬in 2012. Other awards include a Latin American Artist Award, ARTnews Award, and honorable mentions in national and international exhibitions. I was a finalist for the 2004 Alexander Rutsch Award for painting. In 2011, I was awarded a scholarship from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA): Boot Camp- Artist as an Entrepreneur.
