Lloyd Rivera

I do not come from a family of artists, nor was I exposed to the arts as a child, boy or youth. My accomplishments in the arts since 1987 are many - and highlights are major events that have occured at Taos. my greatest is the LEGACY ARTS ABUQUERQUE GALA of 2012, a benefit for "Art for the Heart" Foundation and St. Pius Xth High School Art Program.
