After the sudden death of my grandfather due to cancer, I had to stay in charge of his company at only 19 years old. It was a lot of pressure for me because I was in charge of a lot of people, and without my grandfather, who had always been my inspiration. Thanks to that I started painting in the traditional way as a therapy, and with that I got started in the world of art. I learnt some things from my aunt, who
is also an artist, but I invented the technique of Eye Painting, so I learnt it from myself, and each day is like exploring a new world.
It is not painful and it does not mean any harm for my health. If I felt any pain or I knew it would hurt me I would stop painting. I love art and my technique, but my health is first.
My favorite painting is 'Conflicto', it's size is 80x40cm and it's the one that has black borders.
Yes, I also paint with a brush and an airbrush. I also paint with other techniques such as oil painting, but it's always more exciting to paint with my tears.

I sell my paintings in art galleries here in Argentina, or to the rest of the world via my website, where you can contact my art dealer.
I am currently hearing offers from different galleries to show my work in the USA and Europe.
My dream is starting to be a reality: I want my art to be respected as any other way of art, recognized around the world.
