Biography: I was born in Barranquilla, a coastal city located at the north of Colombia, the place of magic realism and a world-renowned carnival. I was raised a few miles from the sea and embraced by the sun and human warmth.

 

My family has a mix of Arabian, German, and indigenous heritage, which meant that diversity was always at the root of my upbringing and passions. I've always loved design and illustration, and I'm always looking at my surroundings for inspiration for my pieces

 

Even though I moved to Portland only one year ago, I keep learning new things about the city and its people every day, and I'm glad to be surrounded by their thunderous energy and optimism.
