My artistic proposal is directed towards the figurative trend. As a multidisciplinary artist I have worked in several -especially techniques silkscreen, painting, engraving, mosaic and bodypainting. I use the female body as a canvas, which sometimes becomes a sketch to create the final work that is in its essence : painting on a canvas the body of a woman painted .
In my work I capture feelings , moments of life and vibration emanating from nature. Various shapes and colors work with ancient techniques and materials such as gouges , brush , pencil, paint and female body, which makes my job a continuous process of research , experimentation and learning.
