The designs are part of the artist's work. In this craft to draw is a way of thinking, of giving substance to the expressions that are perceived or discovered while running the pencil on the paper.

In the works of decorative art and especially sacred art, drawing is an important part of the work. By drawing we are looking for solutions, we are studying details and variants of larger compositions. Finally, there are the  executive drawings on which you realize the final work.

Often working drawings acquire independent value and can be exposed as independent artworks. With this in mind, from the great amount of drawings accumulated in the study, here are presented only some, whole ones or details. All this is to complete an overall image of the work in my art studio.
