Born in Santiago de Chile. There studied graphic design with a focus on painting and subsequently scholarship in visual techniques.
In 1992 moved to Germany.
This was followed by cultural stays in London, Paris, St. Moritz, Florence, Berlin, Salamanca and Venice.
I live in Hamburg and work there in my own studio.
Hamburg is a source of inspiration for me. I often take walks along the banks of the Elbe River and discover the harbor with ever-changing scenery. It is its rainy days filled with wetness and haze that suddenly create atmospheric changes. They result in a sum of colors that I process in my paintings. When the fog comes and covers everything with its cloak of tulle, making even the big containers and cranes disappear, it's a motif I can draw from. It is my Hamburg in gray.
In my series of trees I have tried to capture the different shapes and colors, the strength they have. I interpret nature and paint it only as I feel it, they are memories of walks through the forests of northern Germany, where I live. With all the magic of nature that surrounds me.
Birds are another subject I like to work on. It's their different species, their colors, their tireless singing, their movement and speed. It just captivates me to try and capture all of that.
