Hello!

I'm a maker, illustrator, animator and stop-motion fabricator

from Argentina.

I´m currently working from my studio in Buenos Aires, where I run my kid`s eyewear brand and work on my first children´s book project and single illustrations.

I love to work with a mix of gouache, watercolors, markers, ink and digital, and making stop motion sets and puppets for 3d illustrations and animations.
