Melecio Fresquez (San Pedro, New Mexico) spent over 20 years as a community pharmacist before retiring after being diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. He decided to pursue his lifelong fondness of art and began experimenting with various mediums. He is entirely self-taught, his favorite being watercolors and woodwork.
Today his work is limited to a variety of smaller projects being unable to maneuver large items. His professionalism is evident in every piece and he is continually striving to develop new ideas. “I want people to get as much enjoyment from my artwork as I do from creating it.”
