Nelson Morales

Then getting a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of Utah, Nelson spent his time as muralist for the school doing largescale artwork. After College, Nelson worked as an Art Educator for multiple schools and programs for youth and adults. Currently getting a Masters of Education, Nelson hopes to be an inspiring educator for both students and other teachers.
Nelson's current art practice focuses both on the observation and imaginative side of art making.
