I grew up reading DC comics. Batman was always my favorite. This is my Batman trilogy.
2019 was a great year! The “Year of Chavo” included 11 exhibits & 9 pieces sold (8 of which are featured below). Thanks to all who came out for the shows. It means more to me than I can adequately express.
As always– all my love & gratitude to Joan Emerson for her unwavering encouragement, patience & belief in me .
I would like to extend a debt of gratitude to the following for their support which has been validating.

This is a new piece for next years garden.
I am honored to be included in the Open Center for the Arts 5th anniversary exhibit.
I am pleased to announce that I will be participating in a 2nd show at the Ice House Gallery in Evanston, IL entitled “Contemporary Finds”! The art reception is on May 4th from 5-8pm. This exhibit seeks to “challenge themes of perception, texture, and what can be considered art.” My first experience exhibiting here was amazing; I had my own display wall with 20+ of my pieces featured resulting in several being sold! I hope to see you all there.
This is my second participation in an exhibit at Columbia College.
