About me

Born in 1970 in Cárdenas (CU), now living in Bern (CH), I am married and have two daughters. Currently, I am fascinated by papercut. My other great passion is painting. I also like making jewelry and accessories such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets or busts, which I sometimes sell in arts and crafts fairs or stores.
