Being born and raised in Barcelona, I was always surrounded by art. The works of Picasso, Miró, or Dalí, which are prominently displayed around the city, provided me with endless sources of inspiration, so I guess you could say that I was predisposed to have art in my life.
I attended the University of Hawaii and pursued a BFA in ceramics. Clay was the medium that allowed me to express myself, evolving from abstract forms and very basic shapes to the figurative work that I am making these days.
My sculpture tends to be a little bit darker in content. I am drawn to artwork that either you love or hate (no gray area.) I believe that art should spark some kind of emotional response from the viewer, regardless of what that may be. Most of my pieces are personal in nature, and the majority have some kind of story behind their creation. I hand build my work using earthenware. Color and texture play a very imporant part on my pieces. I proudly joke that I suffer from horror vacui (a fear or dislike of leaving empty spaces, especially in an artistic composition.) I believe that is due to the many art influences I had growing up in a city such as Barcelona, where color and pattern can be found everywhere. I will use a variety of different techniques in order to obtain the desired finished look to my work, which usually tends to be aged, distressed, and imperfect.
My artwork is one of a kind. Please feel free to browse through the image galleries and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I always welcome comments and feedback from people who feel a connection with the art that I make.
