I was born in Santiago, Chile. I draw since I remember, but I was many years without practicing seriously.
My life as artist began later in life despite of the fact I have drawing most of my life, I am an engineer by trade, and the creativity side of art have been always and advantage I have used during my work. I have got two diplomas on Fine Arts from the Catholic University of Chile. I followed these courses in order to get a more structured and methodical way of working, and to learn techniques I never used before. I do not think that you need a diploma to make art, but through it I have learned things I would not have by myself, and also was able to interact with other artists, getting out of isolation, and getting feedback on my work.
