Born in Buenos Aires, I grew up immersed in energy and color, inspired by the people, the art and architecture, the variance, intricacies and connections of colors and patterns. Today, with my Argentinean roots embedded in my soul, I employ an array of techniques to create an impressionistic series of autobiographical works.
