Luce Artist Biography

Frank Brito grew up in Santa Fe and worked as a plumber and plasterer. He always enjoyed whittling, but began to carve seriously in 1967 while recovering from surgery. Brito specializes in bultos (three-dimensional carvings of saints) and is also one of a growing number of New Mexican artists who carve images of animals.
