About


Artist & Illustrator


Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Now living in Berlin.

 

Since I can remember I was always studying arts. When I was five I started attending different courses, learning techniques like acrylic, pencil and watercolors. I studied Comics & Caricatures for almost six years, History of Arts, Fashion Design at Buenos Aires University and my latest passion, Children’s books Illustration with  Monica Weiss where I discovered so many  amazing illustrators and fell in love with the Picture Book world.  In 2015  I   finished my first book 'Oso'.

At the moment I am working in different illustration projects, teaching several art workshops to both kids and adults and writing Art essays and reviews for  Samizdat Online art magazine.
