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, painting, photography and mixed media.
I am interested in visual and written poetry, environment, social changes, the frontier between the real and the imaginary, mythology, symbolism, metaphor as an expressive tool, and the human condition. Please visit my website.
I exhibited my work in Uruguay, Argentine, Australia, Paraguay, U.S.A., China, Colombia, France, Spain and The Netherlands.
