The author was born in Argentina in 1965, and lived there until 1990. Afterwards, he moved to Italy and left 15 years of pastoral ministry behind when something had shifted inside of him that caused the beginning of a profound change. From then on, he began painting, reading books, writing his thoughts, showing his art and attended courses of self-improvement.
Because of his continuous search for personal fulfillment in doing new things, he realizes that nothing a human can do or have, can ever add or detract from their true identity and that any aid that a man can have, comes from a source that seems to be within himself. In 2009 he moved to the State of Washington, USA, where he lives and works.

'I've sold mostly originals. In fact, I have a few originals in my possession right now and all the rest is gone, but not their images... they last forever. I started showing my art at the end of 2005 in Italy... it was a challenge and I embraced it. '
'What I feel is a strong desire to pick up a brush and stain some canvas, crazy things and incoherent patterns like... red sounds, yellows whispers, orange melodies or blue hisses. Waves, spaces, distances, flowers and leaves. Light, time, protection and love! All those things I mentioned know where to go, they choose which place to occupy on the canvas. How many times have they told me what they wanted! I have only fulfilled their desires. Nothing is missing in my life. I have body, soul and spirit. And love... and I feel it.'

'I value the wood lived outside under the open weather. In earlier years I have produced many of my home furniture recycling and transforming that noble material.
In 2005 a door opened in my heart, by what comes out and what continues to stimulate me, pulling me out of different colors and frequencies. And so, finally, I decided to give a gaze of my work to others...
