During my studies I had the opportunity to count on Antonio López, an exceptional teacher, who caused an extraordinary influence on me.
I've always loved to thoroughly observe the nature and my nearest environment; the simplicity of those little things that I find in my way; dry roots shining under the sun, details that can seem to be not transcendental to others but that cause a deep admiration to me when I find them or when I look all over for them trying always to express a feeling.
I believe that painting is to seek these emotions, to grab them and materialize them. It is probably the desire to catch life and be one in its widest sense.
