The spot on the wall, puzzles, chemistry games, costumes, hidden treasure hunts behind the closet doors, those -and some others I don’t remember- are the games that I enjoyed by myself during my childhood. I see them in my current work.


I see them in the presence of scenes in metal, glass, mosaics, in the mixing of enamels, in colors and in my taste for perfume bottles.
 
All these feed the games that I enjoy today, seriously and by myself.
