Artist's Statement

One of the key features in my work is to add a touch of imaginacion.Other factor very important in my inspiration to carry out my work is music, listening to music is essential to me. I really like drawing and painting and especially playing with light and giving volume to my creations. On the other hand, once I decide on the theme to develop, in each of my works I try to seek its maximum perfection and clear definition, something particularly stressful for me.
