He was primarily self-taught. Once he discovered sculpture and drawing, he made bulls, matadors and other bullfighting subjects common themes. His work included public monuments and smaller private commissions, and can be found in numerous collections including the Boca Raton Museum of Art, the Museum of Latin American Art, and the Heriberto Juarez Arts Garden at the Universidad de las Americas Pueblos in Mexico.
