Frequently asked questions

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Weslaco, TX, USA

When did you start making art?

I've been making art for as long as I can remember. From the moment I was capable holding anything that makes a mark, I've been making art. From drawing with sticks in the dirt to sneakly tagging my grandmothers living room walls and furniture with permanent marker. I made art for my family and friends throughout grade school. Friend of mine would even "hire me" to complete their school class projects, nevermind it being "cheating" I would happliy take on the work, haha. Fast forward to high school graduation in 2008. I decied to further my education with a Bachelors in Fine Art, graduating in 2012 from the University of Texas State San Marcos. I've continued onward with my professional art career ever since.

How much do you charge for a painting/digital illustration/art mural?

Starting price for a watercolor painting at any size, medium, or surface is $800 Starting price for digital illustration, example tattoo or album cover artis $250 Starting price for an art mural ( not including materials and accomodations) is $800 Please send me an email and we can discuss details.

How long does it take you to complete a commissioned work of art?

Approximate time frame for:

  • Paintings: acrylic, watercolor, etc. minimum 1-3 months.
  • Digital illustrations: tattoos, album cover artwork, etc. minimum 1-3 months
  • Art murals, depending on size, complexity, and elements minimum 1-4 weeks.
I always communicate with my clients throughout the process. I like to keep them updated with progress unless they note otherwise. I'm pretty diligent about meeting realistic deadlines, the sooner I get started on a project the better. I don't like rush anything I do as it may result in mediocre artwork that I personally won't be satisfied with...
