People ask me why I draw portraits. I draw portraits because I am deeply interested in humanity. I love to feel the different gradations of the souls of the people, without asking with words a direct question: ‘Who are you?”

And there’s one flavor of humanity that never stops to fascinate me and that mainly I like to find: it is vulnerability, as this is the characteristic that, more than others, makes us open and connected to the world, as human beings.  

My preferred technique is with the black and white effect, using charcoal, pencil or willow charcoal on paper.
