My father start as a stone masonry apprentice at the age of 13 and wen I was born he has 30 years old end running is on stone masonry …so I use to tell I beet weed mi head in a marble stone at birth .Ate mi 3 years old I was playing with mi brother out in the patio , running , and some way some how I just end hit with mi front head in the white marble stone door step … I don't know ho detains the record , but this day they give mi 9 points " stitches " …
I grow up in this village " Vila vicosa " in the center of marble stone felon , end I spent mi free time being the shad of mi father between marble stone quarries and stone masonry's , marble stone sculptures and artists … ate mi 14 hall school vacation was spent working helping mi father , just to win money for my boy things …ate 17 I quit school to start was a young stone mason , it take mi 10 years to be better than mi father , so to prove him at the age of 27 I start my career as a marble stone sculptor.

Growing up amid marble stone sculptures and artists led me to understand life as a passage for this wonderful planet on which we are an uncertain time.

My experience has stone mason lids mi to do a very risky , hard to work and not replying pieces. Must all mi artworks are feelings and mi better works really break mi hart ….
So let hear a mark for those who come may know I was already is this planet ,how do I felt life and lived , it is important , do it in marble stone will last for eternity .
The marble stone carving is very hard , and you must know it and know how to work it to make a good artwork.
Most of my artworks are feelings .... Are moments in my life that marked me or marking as time goes on, and I try to let them carved in marble stone .
There are others pieces I was asked to do ... my passion for oriental art takes me to mix the abstract with florals .
As a human , culture and Japanese values &<8203;&<8203;fascinate me ..........
