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 artwork reflects everyday life through the eyes of my imagination, and my illustrations find their way as part of digital campaigns, branding, publishings and exhibitions. When it comes to graphic design, branding is my thing and I create visual identities from scratch to bring my customer’s ideas to life.

When I’m not drawing, I’m offering creative consulting, teaching creativity workshops or doing public speaking at events.
