My interest lies on the exploration of life and nature. I find in the animals an easy way to represent feelings and emotions. Observing and studying their organic shapes help me to portray their movements in a poetic way. I also find the human body an interesting subject, with its organic structure and shapes, it allows to depict sensations, emotions and feelings.
My work is primarily based in the illustration. I often employ pencils and watercolors to create delicate drawings inspired by the nature.
Through the printmaking, I found the opportunity to play with the line and the tone in a subtile way, mostly using hard ground and aquatints.
With the Japanese woodblocks I discovered a new medium that adapts to my needs matching my illustrations with the representation of all these movements and life.
