The Artist

Manuel has a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas-Pan American, and is also certified by the Institute of Interior Design of San Francisco.


Fine Art brings originality, function, and beauty to a living or working space. It goes far beyond aesthetics because it evokes REAL emotions with every brush stroke. Art has meaning to both the artist and viewer alike. 

"My subject matter varies greatly, as I travel extensively and usually work from memory."  

Manuel offers original paintings and limited edition giclee' prints on canvas which can be customized to fit virtually any space.  

A typical project includes these services:

Choosing a painting can be scary we know. Relax. Manuel has the experience, connections and style to bring your vision to life – on schedule and on budget.
