installation, mixed-media, sculpture, abstract


My work is a reflection of my daily encounters and experiences. Working with a variety of mediums, allows me to express more precisely my vision or my "language", which would otherwise be difficult to express in words.


My creative process is based on the freedom it gives me to experiment with new materials and mediums. Once I find the right mix, I start to develop a series, always trying to give a positive message through words, colors and concepts. My routine consists on concentrating on two-dimensional work for about a year, or until the series is complete, and then change to three-dimensional for the same amount of time. My years of studying architecture influenced this routine, which helps me to maintain a balance in the diversity of my work.


My memories of childhood, nature and architecture are my inexhaustible sources of inspiration. The interactions of humans with nature from birth to the formation of our faith and values are clearly reflected in my work.


I've always been interested in creating my own language but at the same time create something that everyone is able to interpret on their own, no translation needed.
