Narrative is the main idea of my artwork. I like to work in series, exploring stories, poems and/or brief sentences to understand what we can see that had not been said, what is behind the stories and to try to find out who owns these words. ​ My work has been driven by a desire to reveal an image with a strong poetic content, where the body is not only physical, but is also the way to represent personal speech. It can be sad that my work is a record of a precise moment that alludes to the poetry of the mind and the connotations that it takes on the body. ​ Two elements play an important role in my work: the line and the gesture. I have been working with etching for many years and the line is always present in the printing. Even in the painting, the line is there to give the structure that determines the space. Expressive gesture built strong lines that give movement and emotion to the composition.
