Hello, I’m GENE. I’m a working artist living in Southern California. I create fine art for the purpose of touching people's hearts and souls. I do commission work and my personal studio/gallery is located in Historic Downtown Santa Ana, California.

I create art that is:

• Expressionism

• Fine Art Nudes (Painting & Photography)

• Handmade and Recycled materials

• Soul oriented

I also create comic books as a colorist/illustrator and am currently available for full book or any pinup projects you may have. I am currently the colorist on the comic books STARGATE: Atlantis/Universe, Hatchet, Cavewoman (covers), and several more independent titles. My comic book coloring portfolio is at

I am an artist and design teacher, a public speaker and have over 25years experience in the graphic and fine arts profession. I have an MFA in Visual Brand Design and a BA in Fine Art and Graphic Design. I am an experiential educator in the creative process and team building.

My global peace art initiative is 24 Peaces.
