About

I’m a fantasy focused illustrator for the entertainment industry, particularly table top and CCG/TCG. I’m also a professional Industrial Designer graduated in 2012 from PUCV, e.[ad]. I finished my studies successfully only to pursue a career as a fantasy Illustrator by using my knowledge in design making processes to give the best service I can.

Is my main goal to help create new and original worlds where gamers and viewers can get lost through its storytelling and background. Helping create an unique experience and new creatures and characters is what drives me forward, I love working in teams of people that are as passionate and as committed, even though I love freelancing I do rather work in groups rather than alone. I like to maintain my role as an asset and to lead and direct only when needed.

My inspiration comes from music and nature itself. Grown up in the south of Chile surrounded by forest and wildlife that nurtured my imagination by day dreaming about fantasy and epic stories.

Thank you for coming by and if you need any services feel free to contact me at any given time.
