Selected Honors~
My art career has presented me with many honors which include the publication of my mural El Santero, on the cover of Travel magazine, Colliers Encyclopedia year book for 1992, National Geographic’s - Destinations Special Publication in 2001 among others. My Taos Ski Valley mural at the base of the mountain was published in The New York Times. 

I have been honored by the Town of Taos to document the history of Taos, New Mexico which includes a mural of the first meeting of the Taos Pueblo and the Spanish Crown.  This project led to the privilege of designing a wall to portray a Timeline of Taos’ history with eight murals, four of which I painted. 

An honor of special pride includes the participation in the restoration of the Alter screen in the Holy Trinity Church in Arroyo Seco in 1997 and 1998. I was taken through the meticulous process of museum restoration under the guidance of Claire Muzenrider, chief conservator of the Museums of New Mexico.  I was also a guest panelist in 1990 for the New Mexico Art History Conference held at the Harwood Museum in Taos, NM.
