About me

My adventure started in 2016 when I left my job to take a leap into the visual arts world. I studied Advertising and Graphic Design in Panama City where I am currently working, and I have built a solid experience in the field of illustration through experience.

My style is figurative with a subtle sense of humor. My artwork reflects everyday life through the eyes of imagination and I usually use ink, digital tools, craft materials or a mix of all to bring my ideas to life.

My illustrations are used in digital campaigns, branding, publishings and exhibitions. When it comes to graphic design, I develop visual identity projects from scratch or a rebranding.

As a creative consultant, I offer concept developments for campaigns, teach creativity workshops and do public speaking at events.
