His sculptures are small and medium in size. Nature, feeling and shape intertwine to recreate new volumes that provide expressive personality and uniqueness to all his works that we could define as anthropological, soft in texture and sensible to the touch. His creations present individual or group themes and are accompanied by poetic words from the author himself. Ancient tools and implements used in the farming activities of yesteryear are his tools of choice, in addition to industrial and mechanical elements. Almond, olive, oak, beech, holm oak, iron and stone are the materials that he uses
