BIO

'I just want to draw. Everything else terrifies me.'
'Solo quiero dibujar. Todo lo demás me aterra'





I was born in Madrid, Spain in 1987.
I Graduated from Complutense University Madrid (Fine Arts). I obtained an Erasmus scholarship to study in Wimbledon College of Arts, London, where I discovered one of my favourite places, the National Portrait Gallery. I developed a personal project about big scale self-portraits, which was exhibited in Vyner Street Gallery, London.
As paper has always been one of my preference materials, I finally decided to start studies on Illustration as another way to continue developing my drawing skills.
 
Currently I am broadening my perspective, blurring the line between drawing and painting.

Artist Statement


I love drawing women.

The closeness between what I am and what I draw gives me an easily understandable security.
When a woman draws a woman, they are joined with complexity threads. 
The inspiration that guides me when I look at her naked body turns into a pleasant comprehension of all of her proportions.
Each of my drawings has a slight self-portrait nuance.
I love drawing extraordinary women. They are out of limits because they are be able to break down stereotypes.
They are proud of being natural and strong.
I hope to convey the intense admiration I feel for ‘my women’; I would wish for myself their strong self- confidence.


Me gusta dibujar mujeres.
La cercanía entre lo que dibujo y lo que soy me da una seguridad fácilmente comprensible.
Cuando una mujer dibuja a una mujer, se unen a través del espacio por un hilo de complicidad.
La inspiración que me guía cuando miro su cuerpo desnudo se convierte en una agradable comprensión de todas sus proporciones.
Cada uno de mis dibujos tiene un ligero matiz de autorretrato.
Me gusta dibujar mujeres perfectas. Lo son porque no se basan en estereotipos; los rompen.
Se sienten orgullosas de ser mujeres naturales y poderosas.
Pretendo transmitir la admiración que siento por 'mis mujeres'; aquellas que poseen esa autoestima inmutable y férrea que tanto anhelo.
