Welcome to my page. I am an artist, illustrator and designer based in Spain. I am mostly inspired by photography, people, lifestyle, nature, women… I love painting portraits too!
I have been painting and drawing all my life but I have been working as a freelance illustrator and designer since 2013 after graduating with top grades in 2012 with a Fashion Studies BA from Bournemouth Arts University and a fashion Diploma at ESNE Madrid. I also studied an illustration course at ESDIP Madrid in 2007 and a digital print design course in Barcelona in 2013, where I discovered my passion for digital painting.
My final graduate menswear collection "Look Inside" was chosen to represent BAU (Bournemouth Arts University) at the London Graduate Fashion Week'12 catwalk. This collection was inspired by my personal take on Kafka's Metamorphosis and by our need to "look inside", beyond the superficial and appearences and into the many different unseen layers of ourselves.
I also received top grades during my studies for my projects and dissertation related to Ethical Fashion and Sustainability in the industry and gender roles in fashion. These topics are a great inspiration for my artwork too.
In 2011 I won the first prize for a design competition. I had to design the uniforms for the branding of a new beauty treatments clinic and brand called "Facial Clinique".
I also won some Art prizes and many P.E/sports prizes &competitions during my primary and secondary school years.
