I was born in 1988 in Madrid.

In 2008 I began in a school of fashion design. There I discovered that my true vocation was the illustration so one year after, 2009, I began my studies of illustration in the art school ‘Arte 10’ in Madrid. When I graduated I moved to Den Haag, Nederland, where I lived and worked as a freelance illustrator for two years.

Currently I live very close to Lisbon, in Sintra, a magical and inspiring place in the Portuguese coast, surrounded by woods, sea and smell of eucalyptus.
I work at my studio, that is a room in my house.

In my work I look most of all to make each illustration with true motivation. Feel identified with what I’m illustrating. My inspiration comes from women most of the time. I’m interested on the intellectual and creative vision of women throughout history. Inspired by the lives of real women who had to fight against different elements at different times to be free and to express themselves no matter what. The connection between human being and nature, trees, ocean, animals, plants, are very inspiring for me too. The watercolor is inspiring by itself.

Although my primary technique is the graphite, the watercolor is the key point of my work. The drawing shows you the tangible idea and the watercolor provides the most surreal, intuitive and sensory part of the work.
