My beginnings in the plastic arts were back in 92, in the world of photography. In the following years I got into digital techniques and experimenting new learnings in new technologies. Professionally I have been collaborating with companies dedicated to interior design and decoration, performing graphic design tasks.

Since ten years ago, I have currently focused all my artistic activity on abstract painting. I am looking to experiment with new materials to find textures that generate a strong dynamism in my creations. My works stand out for their creative strength and intensity, projecting in each of them my inner energy to transmit it to the observer.

I am a self-taught painter using various mediums to explore the inner landscape and how feelings can be transmuted into a language all its own through color, line and texture. My style is influenced by abstract expressionism inspired by masters like Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock that is characterized by gestural brush-strokes or mark-making, and the impression of spontaneity also expressive or emotional in its effect. I work in a spontaneous improvisatory manner often using large brushes to make sweeping gestural marks and deep textures with marked movements. My artworks express as a search of the intricacies of life, as a result of humans continually searching for meaning, making meaning out of lived or observed experiences, and attempting to connect to other humans. Continuously strives to establish an understanding of the unknown, to name the unnamed, to mark the ordinary, and to dignify our existence. Central to each of those purposes are emotions.

Finally, just add that my artworks reflects a long standing relationship with mixed media, abstraction, color and found materials. I want my work to be a mirror to the viewer showing beauty and ugly. But in viewing I hope people comes away with a richer understanding of life and the world..
