Get to Know

I can't remember exactly when I first entered in the bookbindery, I guess it was soon after I started walking, when my mother and me were visiting my father at work.
Books have entered my life since I was born, such as the need to create and communicate through my works, my handmade creations.

Now I'm learning to be a bookbinder and a book conservator, and when I'm not in the bindery I study at University Library Science and Bibliography.

But I'm still looking for the best way to express my skills, and I love to experiment, challenge myself creating bookbindings mixing up traditional techniques with brand new or unusual materials.
