I was born in Patagonia in Argentina. I’ve always been excited about drawing and creating my own characters ever since I can remember. However, this seemed like a “world only for me”, and looking around at the social situation in my country, I decided to dedicate myself to addressing the social problems and began my universities studies in Social Work in Cordoba.
I am passionate about getting to know new cultures, peoples, languages, expressions… I am convinced that diversity is a contribution to make our daily life more dynamic and rich. In this exchange I became aware that our own talents and skills can be a real contribution to make a change to the world we live in.
This experience led me to rethink my career and I decided to improve my drawing and I studied illustration.
Personally, I like to think the illustration as a communication’s instrument able to give values, ideas, knowledge to put in motion positive relationships. I think that the creation of an image can be a space of interaction where adults and children, from one culture or another, can meet, exchange ideas, opinions, emotions, as well as learn and grow together.
I support a project for diffusion and transmission of values through stories for children who attend rural schools or low income schools in Argentina.
