Born in Chihuahua, Mexico, Carlos now resides in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he has just completed a new studio space overlooking the wide expanse of the breathtaking New Mexican landscape. Having lived in Los Angeles for more than 20 years, his recent move to New Mexico has enabled him to reach new heights in his already well known sense of luscious color sensibility. Upon completion of his Bachelor in Arts, Art/Religious Studies from California State University at Bakersfield he then continued his graduate studies in art at Claremont Graduate University.
