As I am a visual artist, I love to create and explore all mediums. My favorites ones are photography and painting. I crave for creativity and design process, inspiration comes from any subject, the challenge to bring a new concept to reality is exciting. I love the masters such as Da Vinci, Dali, Calder, Escher and Rockwell, as well as from clever marketing media campaigns to my fascination for posters, book design, architecture and interior design. The collaborative and commissioned jobs are the most exciting ones because evolve more ideas working together to fulfill the client's dream.
I have exhibited my photographs and paintings throughout Long Island, NY including the East End, NYC and Brazil. My works are in private and corporate collectors in the United States, Brazil, Costa Rica, England, Greece, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Portugal and Spain.
