On what occasion would I lie? I do not lie, I say the truth in a very soft way.
What is the influence of role models, in my work and my life? The opposites and the way to equilibrate them. Light an shadow. In the bi-dimensional and three-dimensional way.
In my life the wisdom of feminine and masculine, the different kinds of expression. Mind and heart. Father and mother with their faults and success.

When and where was I the happiest, in my work? I am very happy with simple things. From getting ready the implements, the preparation of the colors, the colors itself, the textures, the smell of them to the finished work. The time spent in it. There are several times, but the best moment is when my art work shows up the mystery wrapped in.
