Biography from Manitou Galleries - Contemporary Artists:
Nicholas Herrera is what you might call a 'homegrown' artist.  Born and raised in northern New Mexico, he is linked to the history of wood carving through his great uncle, Jose Inez Herrera, a respected santero.

Having survived some difficulties in his teen years, Nicholas Herrera's work was noticed by people in the local art world and he has been carving since that fortuitous beginning.

Although rooted in traditional wood carving in New Mexico and using the same materials, his work breaks with that tradition by commenting on contemporary culture with humor, satire and at times, political statements.

In March of 2006 Mr. Herrera was interviewed by a representative of the Smithsonian Art Museum, and as a result, his work will become part of the permanent collection.

HIs work is also included in the Museum of American Folk Art in New York, the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, the Western Heritage Museum, the Harwood Museum, Regis University, Millicent Rogers Museum and the Museum of International Folk Art.
