"As an artist I am interested in calling to the reflection on the dehumanization that today we live, I use my knowledge and do as an artist especially from drawing and painting influenced by naturalism to express many realities is what we live today. That is why my work often becomes social, but it is precisely because I want the plastic work to be complemented with a positive contribution in people’s lives. In my work you will see drawings and paintings of bodies, and varieties of games between light and dark and gold leaf. I am a lover of the processes of works and to be able to discover new ways of performing them, giving value to each one of them"
