"My work is impregnated by the need to express myself sensitively and artistically from a reflective act of observing and observing oneself. Each of my pieces aspires to be more than an object of value and aesthetic pleasure, I seek to create pieces loaded with symbolism, which accuse the social discomforts and my emotions in front of them. The artistic challenge for me is to achieve an aesthetic discourse consistent with my personal concerns and suggestive for those who observe or carry it".
