I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1955. I studied Chemistry and I am self-taught in Photography. I work using my own techniques and formulas, making unique pieces on film and paper.
I design and make artist’s books that include haiku and prose of my authorship, drawing, calligraphy, photography and mixed media.
I am interested in environment, social changes, the frontier between the real and the imaginary, mythology, symbolism, metaphor as an expressive tool, and the human condition.
I exhibited my work in Uruguay, Argentine, Australia, Paraguay, USA, China, Colombia, France, Spain and The Netherlands.
