What early influences did you have on art?
My father is a painter and photographer, all my life I saw art in my house, with thousands of pictures that were changing frequently on the walls. Although he uses oil and his paintings are more classic. I was inspired to follow in his footsteps.
Also in my time of student had a companion with whom we often visited art galleries and exhibitions in Santiago.
Describe your work
My work is mainly inspired by nature and music. I think that in nature is all the perfect beauty, I like the designs and colors of butterflies, fish, flowers, birds, etc. On the other hand, music is one of the most important things in my life, I am a fan of rock and blues. I have painted some paintings inspired by Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Grand Funk, Bjork, Cerati, Spinetta and portraits of Chilean musicians: Felipe Toro (voice and guitar), Claudio Bluesman Valenzuela (Harmonista) and bassist America Paz.
Another of my inspirations has been Europe, it seems to me that there is a beautiful architecture and landscapes, as it was like “Positano”, a village in Italy with hill houses and a beach with characteristic sunshades.
France also inspired me to paint “The Simple Things of Life”, I wanted to use the classic colors of the movie “Amelie” and with a message in French at the bottom of the painting: “Les choses simples dans la vie¨.
My influences in style are pop-art, abstract art and impressionism. My favorite artists are Van Gogh, Dalí, Andy Warhol and Klimt.
I am currently working on commissioned works.
When did you start seeing yourself as an artist?
I started painting from 2015, inspired by my father and also by my love, the musician Felipe Toro, I wanted to give him a painting for his birthday when I met him, and from there I have not stopped painting, I fell in love with painting and I I realized that I was good and that people liked my work. I’ve been painting for almost two years and now I dare say I’m an artist, a Chilean painter.
I also dedicate myself to dance, to the naked, to the sensuality. I can express the art of movement and eroticism with my body.

What do you think of art today?
I think there are incredibly talented artists, hyper-realism impresses me but at the same time I think it’s not my goal, I like to have a style of my own, like every artist. The artists dare to generate impact with their works, to show the world of today. There is a lot of contemporary creativity with different techniques.
