Jose's passion for sculpting started as a young boy when he would use the extra dough from his mother's cooking to sculpt. He also loved to run outside when it was raining to make the mud, his "clay", into animal figures and play with them until they became too dry and crumbled. Although he had no formal training, he has been drawn to sculpting because of his inner need to create.
He followed his passion for art while workign at a Fine Art Foundry where he continued to hone is artistic skills. He was inspired while working with many talented artists. "I love the feelings of freedom and joy that I get during the process and completion of a hummingbird sculpture."
