I grew-up in Uruguay and was always amazed by nature.
It was while living in Texas in 2004 that I had the opportunity of studying oil painting techniques in different courses, I also took drawing and photography lessons. I continued studying and doing research on different styles and techniques as self-taught until today.
I have been painting professionally since year 2004.
It is through the art of painting that I express my feelings, passions and emotions. I work on a loose and free style, abstract expressionism. I find inspiration in my memories of childhood years spent near Italian ancestors and their stories and nostalgia, and specially very attached to my grandmother that influenced me in my passion for nature and flowers in particular.
Several pieces were inspired by dreams people shared with me or my own dreams.
Being always surrounded by the Texan countryside has been a great environment to deepen this admiration of nature and it supported me to create the shapes, colors and compositions on my canvases.
