I'm just a self taught patient hobbyist person.

I've always been interested in drawing, sculpting and painting since I was 2 years old.

I started drawing and developing my own style of ballpoint pen drawing back when I was in school, in simple classroom sketches in the back of my exercise books. I never imagined there were so many brilliantly masterful ballpoint artists out there.

Ballpoint pen is not my only medium, it's just the one I'm currently trying to master. At this point in my life I'm fairly proficient with chalk, pencil, color pencil, pastels, oils and acrylics. Maybe one day I'll create an account just to share those.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.

It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further.

Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.
A ballpoint pen is just another art tool. A tool is only as powerful as the Artist who uses it.

It's not about what you use, it's about how you use it.

Nice gallery! Love it!
In my class I'm taking in school, we're learning how to hatch and crosshatch. My teacher told us to look up your work, and I wanted to say that it is amazing.

Hi. Thank you very much. Many students around the world have assignments about my work and study it, from primary school to university, which is a great honour for me, specially because unlike most people whose work is studied, I am still alive and 31 years old. Thank you for the compliments.
You're welcome, actually, it's an honor that you responded to me. I appreciate it.

Your art is so amazing! I just wanted to say I really look up to you!
Great work! Just a heads up in case you don't see my note but this person has laid claim to your work.

I posted a copyright report on your behalf for this… but you may have to reinforce it.

Cheers, good luck.
