Born in the foothills of the Andes, in Argentina, I have travelled extensively, particularly fascinated by India, Nepal and the Far East.  I have eclectic interests, with a flexible approach to my work that involves printmaking, drawing, painting and other mixed media responses.  Through my journeying, I am inspired by nature and diverse artists including Hundertwasser, Xul Solar, Gormley, Italo Calvino and Svankmajer.  These inspirations inform my work which hope to capture a sense of interconnectedness, community and spirituality.

Inspirations from 2015 onwards

I started to work with mixed media, combining ink with more traditional printmaking and drawing methods, as my medium. I largely make mono-prints, using the above methods, so that whilst each is a print, they each have a unique quality because of the hand-finished water based inks and finishes.

 

I continue to explore the nature of humanity; creating landscapes that show the vastness of nature in juxtaposition with the smallness of individuality; I hope that through the doorways, there are new journeys to show that we are essentially interconnected.
