Statement:

"Contemporary art with an ancestral soul.

My works are mainly made of copper, an innovative material for the technique that I work with, which is filigree, fine threads intertwined with each other, welded as a lace, creating new shapes, transparencies, shadows. Exploring the different finish alternatives that this material offers me, oxide, patina, pure copper.

Through my work I try to bring these materials to life, show their secrets. Each piece is unique and has a story".
