Peter Ortega was born in Tesuque, New Mexico. His parents are the esteemed Santero Ben Ortega Sr. and Isabelle Ortega. He is of Spanish decent which is an important aspect of keeping the folk art tradition. Peter learned the ways of being a Santero from his late father over 45 years ago. Each piece of artwork starts with a piece of wood which he then becomes inspired to turn it into a masterpiece. Peter is proudly carrying on the Ortega family legacy of creating magnificent works of art that will last for generations to come.
