I am an Argentine-American artist, born and raised in Los Angeles.

I am fascinated by the multi-faceted complexity that makes each person unique.
I believe that all individuals contain an entire universe within them, which is invisible to the naked eye.
My work concentrates on giving shape to the unseen forces within my subjects-- their thoughts, memories,
emotions, and complex histories. These qualities fit together to form a vast, rich inner-landscape of identity
and mythology for my characters.

In May 2007, I graduated as valedictorian from Otis College of Art and Design, with a BFA in Illustration
and a minor in Creative Writing. I have shown my work in prominent galleries across the US and around the world.
My work has been published in Suggestivism, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz, Imagine FX, Spectrum 16-20,
Society of Illustrators LA, Blue Canvas, Infected by Art, Miroir Magazine, Creep Machine, and the Creative Quarterly.
