I love design in all its expressions, mainly industrial and fashion. I love color and geometry and its interaction with nature. In my work you can see the combination of all this, as well as the architecture in infinite forms.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Most of my work I do digitally, but draw with fine pencils pure line very simple.

I do not have a defined process, sometimes the ideas arrive and that’s it. Many times the inspiration is fast and directly to illustrator.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I am inspired by solid objects, sculptures, the human body, architecture. Music is a great influence for me, I think it’s something basic to draw.

It is a basic part of my life, art is anywhere and everything.
