What was your first artistic memory?
Working in my grandma's art studio making a dinosaur out of clay.

What was your biggest influence growing up?
Tim Burton, Egon Shiele, Madonna
How did you learn you different mediums?
At grandma's studio
How do you decide which mediums to use for which idea? Do you have a medium that speaks to most to you?
Ink and paper, still nature sculptures. I don't really think on creating, it just happens.
Animals seem to be the primary subjection in your work. Tell us more.
I grew up with a lot of animals around, including Aunt Chiquis, a spider monkey that lived with my grandparents for 35 years. I developed a deep communication with these creatures. The purpose with my art is to make people realize these guys are allies. They are here to help us elevate our frequency with their unconditional love. Thoughts of possession toward them limit our growth. The Rainbow Warrior prophecy says that mystical and extinct animals will come to help us make the Earth green again, that's what I draw.
What's the first step in your creative process?
When, how and where do you get inspired?
The need to talk about something relevant. I usually create with I'm solo at my studio.
What kind of music do you listen to when you create?|
I mix all kinds of music in a playlist. I'll be listening to The Beatles, then change to icaros, then some hiphop, reggaeton, classical music, electronic music. I let music guide me through how I need to move at the moment.
You've previously collaborated with musicians on their visuals. Which musicians would you like to collaborate with in the future?
Rainbow Warrior musicians, people committed to the art and inspiration rather than themselves.
What would you be if you're weren't an artist?
We are all artists in our different crafts, so I'd always be an artist, even if I was doing something different.
Why do you create? What's your message?
My art is inspired by the BE WHAT YOU DREAM philosophy, knowing we are responsible of creating our own reality, trusting intuition and prayer/visualization
What is success for you?
To be free and present at all time.
What causes are you passionate about?
The evolution of souls, finding our mission on this planet. Helping myself and others see the light within.

The Uniwolfcheetah has a special place in my heart.
