This artist was a pupil of the renowned local painter Alfredo Zalce who gave him his first lessons and introduced him to the world of art. 

His most popular crafts are his clay Catrinas which he began to elaborate in the seventies inspired in those by Guadalupe Posada, the most famous Mexican engraver whose artistic designs imposed a new fashion and a new creation style, so much so that even now many artist continue to copy his work and his Catrinas have become representative of Morelia.
