Painting: Paintings that produce or reproduce a real or fantastic picture, made with passion and inspiration, sometimes in striking colors and sometimes more minimalist, in simple colors, depending on the liking of each one and what suits it.

Ceramics: It is the art of making ceramics, which are painted in the colors that everyone wishes and combine them, both with the modern and with the classic house.
