As a young adult, I moved to New York from my native country of Argentina. My previous studies and degree were in teaching and journalism but since childhood I dabbled in art and crafts.
During the early years, besides raising a family, I studied ceramics and sculpture and developed my own style. During that time I participated in several group showings and received several awards. I also taught myself the basics of early microprocessors and computers.
After moving to Washington D.C., I learned computer programming and wrote several programs, including "The Banner Machine" - which printed large-sized banners using a dot matrix printer - and a number of companion utilities for a retail point of sale software package.
Our move to Atlanta coincided with the advance in digital photography which opened for me a whole new field and gave me the capability of combining my artistic aspirations with my fascination with computers.
During the last several years I have participated in numerous art shows and received many awards. My website illustrates all aspects of my work and its evolution and my Facebook page keeps everybody abreast of my latest art related news.
