I’m a Cuban-born author and illustrator based in Montreal. My stories are inspired by the basic needs of the human spirit: beauty, humour and nature. My illustrations, a blend of naïve style and tropical colours, combine the use of traditional and digital techniques. A former biologist, always attracted by literature and design, I completed a graphic design program in 2013 that allowed me to start a career in self-publishing. Several of my books, including Lessons from my Cats (2018) and Un paseo por La Habana (A walk through Havana) (2019), are available in various bookstores across Quebec.
