I’m interested in exploring the poetic image as a communicative power through my own language. Although various records, my work and illustrations exude passion for drawing and engraving.
My works and illustrations, in spite of their diverse registers, show my passion for drawing and engraving. Perhaps this is why I like treating images gently giving special attention to the traditional handmade aspect of the process. All in all, along with my curiosity, sometimes bring me to graphic experimentation and to the search for new horizons.
