Curatorial Experience

Proven experience in curating exhibitions, selecting artworks, and creating visual narratives is at the core of my work. Over the years, I have developed the ability to identify emerging artistic trends and movements, staying consistently updated on the local and global art scene. Additionally, I possess a special skill in establishing connections between different artworks, creating thematic dialogues that stimulate reflection and appreciation. My excellent research, analysis, and interpretation skills in artistic and historical concepts enable me to curate relevant and meaningful exhibitions that captivate audiences and provide an enriching experience.

Interior Design

I have a solid background in interior design, with a special focus on exhibition spaces and immersive environments. My ability to create innovative design concepts considering the needs of artists, the functionality of space, and the viewer's experience is one of my key strengths. I have a deep knowledge of design principles, as well as the selection of materials, colors, lighting, and furniture, which I use to create aesthetically pleasing and functional environments. Additionally, I possess project management skills, team coordination, and work closely with architects, builders, and suppliers to ensure the proper execution of interior design projects. I am committed to creating spaces that inspire and captivate, offering a memorable experience for end users.
