I am a full-time artist, currently based in Cuenca, Spain.

I use different techniques such as drawing, painting, photography, illustration. My work contain references to Spanish culture, films, music, art history, merged with my own experiences and ideas, drawing inspiration for my figurative work, from life, my own photos, or fashion editorials, movie scenes, or the work of earlier artists like Pablo Picasso, De Kooning, El Greco and others. I have been painting and exhibiting in Romania, Netherlands, Spain and UK. I don't strive for perfection. I strive for expression and emotion.
