Science + Art

Drawing people, things and events has been a part of my life since childhood. The fragile lines of graphite pencils, the perfect circles made by compasses, the ephemeral surface of paper and the reconstructive power of markers, brushes, paint and erasers were some of the qualities, materials and substances that gave form and meaning to the world around me.

Between practice and theory, I decided to become an anthropologist, focusing on art, visual and material culture. I'm not an artist, I'm an anthropologist using art (drawing, painting and photography) as a methodological tool, reinventing and enhancing scientific illustration with metaphor, imagination and creativity.
