A life long resident of Dixon, New Mexico, Clarence Medina took an interest in art since he was able to hold a brush.
Entirely self-taught Clarence has painted with oils for twenty-three years. Remembering when he started painting with oils, he mixed oils with water. Little did he know oil and water do not mix. After intensive gallery and museum visits and reading art books, he has now developed a style uniquely his. An admirer of master artists, he has seen exhibits of Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
His paintings are in private collections throughout the country. His work can be purchased at his studio in Dixon or at the Annual Contemporary Hispanic Market in July exclusively.
