Philosophy


I am interested in searching an honest way to discover who I am. Creating is for me a process of transformation and mystery. I like to experience and to explore different means, such as painting, engraving, literature, and recently, thanks to the Galeria Ajolote (Axolotl Gallery),
silk-screen printing.
One of the many phrases which remind me of the deepest sense of my journey through life, and which has accompanied me throughout, is this by W. B. Yeats: “I’m looking for the face I had before the world was made”.
