In the after hours I get the opportunity to work on my art and be more creative. This is when I start combining the photopgraphs I take with the textures and the elements around me. I love creating the textures that go into each layer and once blended, a new art is mysteriously born. I have been collecting newspapers, comics and magazines from my travels and I love using them as texture in my pieces. I use foreign stamps, specialty papers even receipts or tickets. If they connect and are harmonious then it obviously makes sense. I just love collecting and having a database of items at my disposal.

Over time I realize those unexpected additions are sometimes a perfect size and fit and all this time it was eagerly waiting to be used. That is why I collect these timeless treasures, I truly enjoy creating and experiencing those synchronistic moments.
