I am of Argentinian and Italian nationality, born in 1979. Argentina is the country I lived in until I was 28 years old. In 2003 I graduated in Visual Communication Design, in 2004 I began my education in glass, specifically in stained glass art. In 2008 I was awarded a scholarship to study glass painting under the guidance of Italian artist Sante Pizzol in Milan, Italy. From 2009 to 2011 I attended “Vetroricerca Glas & Modern” in Bolzano Italy, where I obtained a more comprehensive education in glass. From 2011 to 2015 I lived and worked in Argentina, when I opened my own Stained Glass Studio. From 2016 to 2017 I worked at The Cathedral Studios, the stained glass studio at Canterbury Cathedral, UK. Then I worked for a few months at “Barley Studio” in York, UK. 

From September 2017 to the present time I am living in Munich, working for the company “Mayer’sche Hofkunstanstalt” GmbH, undertaking very specialist work, namely portraiture painting on stained glass windows. I paint on glass all the flesh of the human figure using the traditional stained glass paint technique.
