Do you remember your first artwork, what was it like?

I don't remember my first picture, but when I was a child I used to draw with my fingers.

I like drawing people and animals... I have no favourite subjects, I draw all I care for.

How education has influenced your creativity and changed your professional way?

From which authors do you get inspiration?

I really like Salvador Dali. I get inspiration from my life and from what's happened around me.
