Since my childhood I have always been very influenced by art. Thanks in particular to my father who was an art teacher and to my brothers who also worked in painting. I have always loved and been attracted to cars and the details of their design. So at the age of fifteen, I decided to study automotive design. I trained in this branch in Guadalajara (Mexico) before leaving a few months later for Germany. Two years later I moved to France, the country in which I currently live. I decided to pursue my career in art but this time in a slightly different way to what I was doing previously. I started to paint some paintings, to express my ideas differently and no longer only in the automotive field. Today I make drawings and paintings around themes that are dear to me, such as Mexican culture, my country of origin. I am more inspired by my culture since I have been living abroad and want to share it through my paintings. So I continue to learn new things and different techniques. It allows me to surpass myself every day while doing what I like. I changed path but no goal.
