Comments of the artist.

English Version | Spanish Version

Art is a means to express what we feel or have experienced during the time of our existence. Using different techniques and materials we can transmit what we feel, live and observe in our own, distinctive way.

After examining ourselves and meditating, the details of our existence and the existence of the people around us, strong feelings emerge that allow us to convey them into the creation of art. But not without the necessary studies and effort that is required to adequately communicate what we desire.

Experiences recorded in our personality enable us to become storytellers of our own ideas and the ideas of others. In my case, I am fortunate that through my travels, I have met many people and learned about many cultures that have inspired me and have enriched my personal anecdote.

To communicate in our work, the time we are living and show others the differences that exists with people is an ideal that has led me to different paths in life.

Art is the mirror of the soul… of your soul and mine… of our gaze.
