I’m a photographer/graphic designer living and working in Barcelona, Spain. I lived in the United States for ten years and became an American citizen. I was born in Venezuela in1960. I received my B.A., in Graphic Design in 1985 and my B.A. in Advertising and Marketing in 2000. At the age of 14, I studied Art and Music, which founded my artistic journey. In 1985 I collaborated in different projects with internationally famous artists such as Victor Valera, Alirio Palacios, and Luisa Richter, given me the opportunity to shape my roots as a photographer, artist and graphic designer.
I participated in in-group exhibitions from 1980 to 1990 in Venezuela, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, and Central America. My paintings were awarded two Tito Salas special recognition awards in 1982 and 1984. In 1985 The Museum of Contemporary art of La Rinconada and Galería de Arte Nacional, Caracas – Venezuela held black and white photographs called Portraits of my Inner, which later toured for two years through South American Contemporary Art Museums.
