I am a contemporary artist. My vision and strength evolve from nature. My challenge is to find and estab1ish an original physica1 dialogue between form and dimension, discover possibi1ities and create a composition with substance. I started out as a painter and I loved it. Throughout time my artistic expression and medium have changed. Some time in the year 2001 I began taking gigantic steps moving forward to sculpture. That same year I had a one person exhibit, the name of the show was "Canvas Grill", and there I presented my first charcoa1 briquettes installations. Since then l have participated in numerous shows and continued working with charcoal briquettes. I also make works of art with a combination of diverse materials and formats.
