I have an academic background in biology. I did a master's, doctorate and post-doctorate in the area of zoology and species conservation. But I am also a professional photographer and a photography teacher for over 10 years now. My walk in the visual arts begins in 2007 and goes through several areas and experiments: analog photography, PB, alternative techniques in photography (cyanotype, Van Dike brown, etc.), drawing, watercolor, oil painting. My work is connected with themes related to nature, sometimes from a more scientific point of view, sometimes more artistic and deeply rooted in my childhood memories and experiences and what maturity brought me from learning, in addition to a poetics that transits through themes of death and disappearance, as this is part of my reflections; reflections of a scientist - artist about life and the process of doing science and art.
