HOLA! I'm Xhico.
I’m a traveling artist, designer, photographer, and creative entrepreneur with my studio in sunny California. With over thirty-five years of experience building brands, visualizing ideas, and design-thinking, my attention is now focused on surface pattern design and online education. You can catch some of my design classes on SkillShare.

When I’m not designing or creative coaching, I'm hosting my annual design retreat in Oaxaca, Mexico. You'll often find me in remote locations in the cloud forests of Chiapas or on the hillsides of volcanoes in Guatemala. I work with indigenous artisans to bring attention to their work through fair-trade collaborations.
For an inside look at my process and my latest work, follow Studio Xhico.
