"I do not remember any time in my life when I did not practice drawing. Over the years, I only saw the will to draw grow on me day after day. Since 1999, I record my impressions in notebooks that vary in size. I don't follow a single technique, I use graphite, ballpoint pen, China ink, gouache or watercolor. In the sketch is explained my way of seeing the world. I believe that through the visual record we can see things that go unnoticed on another occasion. I draw everywhere: In the subway, on buses, at the bakery, at home ... often use blank pages from the books for my paintings in oil or various graphics projects."
