introduction

I guess I take my inspiration from situations I have been through in the past. Experiences that stayed in my mind, and which I believe people can also identify themselves with. I am concerned with portraying a sense of the common feelings and situations that we all go through in our lives, feelings that change and move us through memory.

I was born in Uruguay, a very small country in South America, where my studies were based on Literature and Law. Moving to Europe as a teenager meant a new begining for me, some kind of freedom I never experienced before. I decided to study photography, then Fine art and become a sculptor. My studio is currently based in Manchester where i exhibit as much as I can. I have collaborated with plenty of Manchester based artists in various venues across the north west. Recently I started exhibiting down south as well and hopefully I can take my work even further.
