"I only feel alive when I fight against my habits or when I change the certain for the uncertain in search of new adventures!

With painting the same happens! Play it safe has always been an obstacle for the achievement of great discoveries!

Who is not free does not realize their dreams. And I dream a lot!

Seeking to be increasingly free is my goal as an artist and as a human being!"
