Background

My works are a type of collage, with compositions that are built in layers and over time. These compositions are built with associative visual and verbal ideas resulting from different sources. It is a type of stream of consciousnesses that gets a visual representation.

I focus on still nature, which is often realistic and at times on the verge of the abstract. My works are made according to the classic principals of figurative drawing: layering, etching, coloring, and the combining of textual elements. All originals are printed on photographic paper, fine art paper or wood-free paper.
