Here i am showing Diego's love of flowers and how he saw beauty in death. His house, now a museum is full of art related to day of the dead. I really admire his art, this is only a beginning for me to explore inspirations by Diego and Frida. I love the way he shows the Mexican culture in his art, check it out! He was born in the same city as my Dad, I was born in Santa Barbara Chihuahua, a silver mining town. You have to visit this city if you go to Mexico. It is the most beautiful of all cities south of the border.

Diego Rivera was born in Guanajuato City, Guanajuato, to a well-off family. Rivera claimed to be descended, on his mother's side, from Jews who converted to Roman Catholicism,[2][3] and, on his father's side, from Spanish nobility. Since he was ten years of age, Rivera studied art at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. He was sponsored to continue study in Europe by Teodoro A. Dehesa Méndez, the governor of the State of Veracruz.

After arrival in Europe in 1907, Rivera initially went to study with Eduardo Chicharro in Madrid, Spain, and from there went to Paris, France, to live and work with the great gathering of artists in Montparnasse, especially at La Ruche, where his friend Amedeo Modigliani painted his portrait in 1914.[4] His circle of close friends, which included Ilya Ehrenburg, Chaim Soutine, Modigliani's wife Jeanne Hébuterne, Max Jacob, gallery owner Leopold Zborowski, and Moise Kisling, was captured for posterity by Marie Vorobieff-Stebelska (Marevna) in her painting "Homage to Friends from Montparnasse" (1962).[5]

In those years, Paris was witnessing the beginning of cubism in paintings by such eminent painters as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. From 1913 to 1917, Rivera enthusiastically embraced this new school of art. Around 1917, inspired by Paul Cézanne's paintings, Rivera shifted toward Post-Impressionism with simple forms and large patches of vivid colors. His paintings began to attract attention, and he was able to display them at several exhibitions.

People ask me. How can you do this? I apprenticed with the best Master jewelers from Taxco and apprenticed with the Famous Spanish sculptor Alfonso de Vivanco while i lived in Mexico for 14 years. I also apprenticed with the Master Sculptor Gaspar Peralta in Los Angeles, I had a scholarship to the LA Art Institute when i was 14 years old, I drew from real nudes at an early age.

I  am glad to answer any questions and would love requests for custom work or modifications on any of my jewelry.
