I was born in Santiago del Estero, Argentina, in 1942. My father was a physician and my mother a poet. She loved literature but also, and especially, painting.
My Hispanic roots go back to the time of the conquest. The culture I lived and inherited is inevitably reflected in much of my art.
My beginnings in the fine arts were through stage-design and architecture. Although I experimented with painting and felt an immense atraction towards it, it was only after 1993 that I began considering painting as a real possibility.
In 1968 I migrated to Australia, where I studied linguistics. I devoted myself completely to translating and interpreting, which is my profession. Painting, however, has now taken over. I have occasionally delved into silver work.
Even though I do not do landscapes, my property in Michelago, Australia, has provided the inspiration and peace of mind I need to create.
I have exhibited my work, and the acceptance it has achieved pleases me no end. My paintings hang in private collections in New York, Sydney, Dallas, Austin, Canberra and in some Latin American cities. For that I am deeply grateful.
