I´m currently a Medical Doctor and have been specializated in Psychiatry and dedícate my free time to my passion, art. I´m a self taught artist; I draw since I was a child and have been enjoying this since then. I love drawing and painting women and children portraits, giving them a touch of fantasy; inusual or “magic” situations are a very interesting subject for me too.
