“I have been working on masks since 1998 when I began taking lessons from Don Ismael. Thanks to him, I have been able to travel for the Selby Gardens exhibit and share my art with many different kinds of people.”

Francisco is one of the most accomplished painters. He treats his masks like white, 3-D canvases, in which colors flow naturally without any pre-planning. He enjoys taking his time to make each detail just right. He has visited Selby many times and has had the opportunity to share and learn techniques from other artists.
