“I was born in 1964 in the beautiful city of Cusco, where I lived with my mother.
When I was 12, we moved to the capital where I finished my schooling
and went on to the  Escuela de Bellas Artes del Peru for five years.”

“My origins in art were basically in school where my art teacher taught
me to draw and paint.
From that moment, I was totally in love with art.
I began working on my own, with oils, brushes and canvases
and also learned by observing and imitating professional artists.”

“From childhood on, my hobby was always drawing and painting.
When I do this, I feel like I’m in a cloud in a world of my own.”

“My art career was quite curious. Due to a lack of money,
I had to work at anything I could.
I had a dozen kinds of jobs.”

“My work is abstract and extremely subjective. It is charged with the emotions I’ve experiences throughout my life, and I’ve been collecting these through the years and by way of travel in recent years.”

“What motivates me most is my desire to grow as an artist, to take my art to the whole world and share it with as many people as I can.”
“My greatest challenges have been to live exclusively from my
paintings, and to travel, and show the entire
world that I want art to be a part of their lives.”
