I should clarify that my interest in art was encouraged by my father, who was an artist and a publicist. When I was nine years old, he started by teaching me how to craft wood toys. "It was also good that I had studied in a technical school, where I took courses in technical drawing and the use of tools and materials. I also studied Graphic Design at Buenos Aires University. "My intention is to create works featuring a good design that will allow for the exchange of energy between the design and the materials. They can complement each other in a beautiful piece that can be worn with pleasure and confidence. "After so many years of experience with different materials, I chose to work with silver because I see it as one of the most noble and pure materials. "I would like to thank Novica for making it possible to promote Brazilian arts and crafts through an important partnership for Brazilian culture."
