Why am I here?
I'm a visual artist and crafter. I have infinite and ever growing interests and I can't stop thinking about ways to create new things all the time. Sadly, the mind works faster than the hands. But when I can materialize ideas, attempts and learned things, I show them here.
I'd like to show my passion for knowledge and how that makes us grow in every aspect of life.




My passion
I'm, more than anything, an explorer. I'm ever avid to make new discoveries, new connections, new conclusions. Get excited by the good results and learn from the bad ones. I truly think that art and science have A LOT in common. And I LOVE to share my findings and instill curiosity, awe and passion in people. I never got good chances to do that in my "local" life, but I know that the internet is full of thirsty people from all over the world, so what better way to connect the two than to do it here?



Why Patreon?
It is the perfect tool for artists to be able to make actual art for a living, instead of trying to make a living around it. And it's the perfect tool for people to be in contact and learn about their favorite artists. You are in direct contact with the artist that created the things that move you. You can ask them questions, say things to them, and show your direct appreciation.



My goal
I would like to show you my art, my processes, my findings and engage in interesting exchanges about art with all of you, so in the end, we'll both grow!


Thank you
I'd like to thank you, since you're here, for the life changing opportunity that you're about to give me. No matter how small, your contribution can really make a difference in someone's life. And my hope is I can give you something meaningful back.

This is a great opportunity. As you already know, being an artist in this world and making a living is a very hard thing to accomplish. The phrase "starving artist" doesn't appear everywhere for nothing. Most people have to bend their dreams into submission to the monetary system in order to make ends meet. This means making art only as a hobby for most, and having to do things "art related" for many, but very few get to actually walk an artistic road with the freedom to roam where their true interests lay. It may not seem like this would have much impact on the world. But, think for a minute: imagine the incredible amount of artists that live in this world having the freedom to go where their inner core tells them, instead of having to conform to what is asked of them, or what seems to be "commercial". How many new artistic movements, styles, techniques and inventions are we not seeing right now? I feel it's like being able to see only in black and white versus the whole color spectrum. But now, this can change. With tools like Patreon, artists can really do what they want, and when people support them it's because they like what they do, or how they think, or where they're going. Not because they are famous, or because some TV ad told them to. It is a direct connection, no middleman. Do you realize how important this is? I think it's a revolution. And I truly hope we all embrace this new kind of exchange, as it is the purest we can have. Let's do it!

Note:
I speak Spanish as well (in fact, it's my native language), so I'll be posting bilingually if there are enough Spanish speaking Patreons.
También hablo español (de hecho, es mi lengua nativa), así que estaré posteando en ambos idiomas si hay suficientes Patreons hispano-parlantes.

Versión en Español

Soy artista plástica y artesana. Tengo infinitos y siempre crecientes intereses y no puedo dejar de pensar en cómo crear cosas nuevas todo el tiempo. Lamentablemente, la mente va más rápido que las manos. Pero cuando puedo materializar ideas, intentos y aprendizajes, los muestro aquí.
Me gustaría transmitir mi pasión por el conocimiento y cómo eso nos hace crecer en absolutamente todos los órdenes de la vida.
Esta es una oportunidad fantástica. Como ya saben, ser artista en este mundo y ganarse la vida es algo muy difícil de lograr. La frase "artista muerto de hambre" no aparece en todos lados por nada. La mayoría tiene que doblegar sus sueños, sometiéndose al sistema monetario para poder llegar a fin de mes. Esto significa hacer arte sólo como hobby para la mayoría, y hacer cosas "relacionadas" con el arte para muchos, pero muy pocos logran realmente caminar una ruta artística con la libertad de recorrer los recovecos en donde están sus verdaderos intereses. Quizá no parezca que esto pueda tener un gran impacto en el mundo. Pero, piensen por un minuto: imaginen la increíble cantidad de artistas que viven en este mundo con la libertad de ir adonde su interior les dicte, en vez de tener que acomodarse a lo que se pide de ellos, o lo que parece "comercial". ¿Cuántos movimientos artísticos nuevos, técnicas e invenciones no estamos viendo? Es como poder ver sólo en blanco y negro versus todo el espectro de colores. Pero ahora, esto puede cambiar. Con herramientas como Patreon, los artistas pueden hacer lo que realmente quieren, y cuando la gente los apoya es porque les gusta lo que hacen, o cómo piensan, o hacia adonde van, no porque son famosos, o porque se los ordenó una publicidad televisiva. Es una conexión directa, sin intermediarios. ¿Se dan cuenta de cuán importante es esto? Creo que es una revolución. Y realmente espero que todos abracemos este nuevo tipo de intercambio, ya que es el más puro que podemos tener. ¡Hagámoslo!
