Education
I am a selftaught artist. I started to paint in my childhood and with 13 years old I made my first official work, with Unicef, that were illustrations about Human Rights, that were published later. After that, I continued to paint and decided to make exhibitions and free courses related to this field. My first exhibition was in 2002, with 16 years old. And I never stopped since this time.
