Description: I’m a contemporary artist who works with several kinds of clay & acrylic paint to create post cubism, abstract, and visionary realistic sculptures & paintings. Born in Kansas in 1970 to sculptor Cathie Cordova, I was inspired by my mother to become an artist too. As a child I won several art awards in local and regional art shows in the Midwest and on the East Coast. During grade school my work continued to evolve from traditional forms of sculpture and drawing to FX movie monster busts and then to visionary realism towards the latter half of college. After leaving college I continued working in visionary realism but with each new piece I created, more abstraction came to the surface. At the time I wasn’t sure what style of art I was working in. For awhile I thought it was abstract with a dose of surrealism. Eventually after another 5 years my work took on the post cubist or what some think of as a Mayan style of carving. For me its a language expressed through lines, form, and symbolism.
