"Jesus Moroles is a great international artist, and someone who Craig and Kathryn have collected for many years. Jesus grew up in Texas and became renowned for his large-scale abstract granite sculptures. Moroles received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas in 1978. After graduating, he spent a year in Italy and was motivated by marble-carving techniques and when he returned to Texas, he decided to take those techniques and use them on stone. Among many highlights in his career, Jesus was recognized with the prestigious National Medal of Arts from the U.S. Congress in 2008."
