Ulysses´ series, the journey inside the journey.
The series originated from the trip that my son Julian took in 2006, for six months to Europe. He was seventeen and traveling alone. Mariana, on his return, gave him a gift: an artist's book made with all the exchanged emails and photos during the trip. When he received the book he said, "Everything mom touches, becomes art." One of the first emails that we sent to Julian included Ithaca, Konstantin Kavafis´s poem. Julian answered "My own journey inside the journey begins". So Mariana titled the book in this way and I did the same for this series of drawings

The Erotic series
In 2006 I returned to drawing the human figure. I made the first ones at the Habana Libre Hotel in Cuba with Mariana as the model.
