Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1950 and educated with a BFA at North Texas State University in Denton, Texas, Jesús Moroles lives and works in Rockport, Texas.

After returning from a year of studio work in Italy in 1980, Moroles commenced to make the body of work for which he is widely known. Critical recognition for Moroles came quickly with many of his early exhibitions at Texas museums.
