"I started my Intaglio studies in the 80s In the Graphic Design Institute Newmann in Venezuela. Since then I found a deep connection with the alchemical and ancient technique and continue studying Intaglio with the master print-maker Ina Bainova. The creation and drawing on a metal matrix leads a process of constant transformation, added and subtracted. It is a search that starts from the smooth and shiny plate that like a mirror reflects my feelings, thoughts and desires. Drawing on metal or other materials give me the freedom to discover who I really am".
