He decided to begin to paint for children, before living so close to his son and one day working in FIL (International Fair Book) of Guadalajara, it falls in his hands a Dan Eldon´s book, and he admires how Dan as a common thing gives turns it something so showy!.

He never takes a limit in his paints, he loves mix watercolor, oil, acrylic and other tecnics of XVIII Century, his paints are full of hearts, cups of coffe, and messages (what insist in change the “c” for the “K” and the “i” for “Y”) and don´t forget the elephant who is one of the main element since it considers unacceptable that majestic animal in some years disappear.
