About me

 

Artist & Illustrator

 

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Now living in Berlin.

“Since I can remember I was always studying arts. When I was five years old I started attending different courses, learning techniques like acrylic, pencil and watercolors. I studied Comics & Caricatures for almost 6 years, History of Arts, Fashion Design at Buenos Aires University and my latest passion, Children’s books Illustration with the great Monica Weiss.

At the moment I am finishing my first illustrated book, teaching arts to kids and adults in Berlin and writing for the Samizdat Online art magazine.”
