Abel Juarez, folk artist from Michoacan, creates imaginative buildings, houses, and churches drawn from his experiences in Mexico and in the U.S.  His small scale sculptures depict his impressions of real life. They are distinguished by bright colors and lighting that create moods of celebration. One gallery owner calls them “Happy” pieces.

He also builds a variety of crosses, some simple, some decorated with feathers, flowers, and colors.

Juarez says, “I focus on everything, every day until I am done.  When I start I have to focus on everything’s being good and on the color and on the items that I use like small flowers and pots. Everything has to be very real.”

Juarez is the author of My Mexican Mother, available on Amazon.
