The things I am passionate about are the subject of my art work. I love to travel, which has broaden my knowledge about architecture, and other cities and cultures.
At the same time, every single painting I make has as much from the world as it has from myself, and I want to share not only my point of view and feelings but the body that contains them.
I paint landscapes and portraits of nature, because without it, none of the above could exist. Hence, no matter what I paint, nature is always part of my work in one way or another.
I mix colors in my paintings to create new ones, and big strokes to make a point and focus in the whole. But, because I like to control, you will find in each of my art pieces a hint or more of symmetry, patterns and consistency through my style.
My art work is a reflection of the way I see the world and everything it contains, from the tiniest (human) to the most immense (nature). I want to transmit happiness trough my paintings and that is why I paint what makes me happy, hoping it will make you happy as well.
