I was born in 1972, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and have been drawing eversince.
I graduated from Buenos Aires' Art School, where I developed a great interest in managing different techniques and enjoying my work, which has always been based on experimentation and diversity. Therefore my work is constantly changing and developing itself, looking for new ways to tell a story.
In my own personal search for a style and field of activity, I have worked within advertisement, animation and comics. During the last ten years, I established myself an exciting career as professional illustrator, having published more than 60 children books in Argentine, Spain, France, UK, Australia, Denmark, Taiwan and USA.
Some of my books have been translated to different languages such as German, Corean, Serbian, Greek, French and Italian.
In 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 I have been selected to participate in the Biennial of Bratislava and in 2009 I have been awrded with the Golden Award in AOI from UK to the best picture book(The Tickle Tree by Chae Strathie - Meadowside books).
