Priority: normal


As I mentioned, I had the great pleasure of working with Mr.
Moroles while I was living and working in South Texas... And as
I also mentioned he is a caring and giving artist, always
willing to open up his studio and give his great tour to guests.
He especially enjoys working with students...

I remember the day we went to tape the interview for the Art
Museum of South Texas' tv show, "Art Journeys" and the Getty's
online exhibit and discussion with Jesus Moroles
and Dr. McCarter; we couldn't start until 1:30pm because he was
giving tours to two different high school groups that morning!
He spent the rest of his afternoon with us, talking about his
life, his work, and showing us around his studio...the granite

Did you know that many of his sculptures weigh as much as a car?

And did you know that he owns his own huge trucks to deliver his
work? He wants to oversee every part of his work from conception
to execution to delivery to installation!
