I have lived in different places such as Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, Zurich, Mexico City and Dubai. By living in these cities, I learned that there are many ways to see life and understand it. Knowing, observing, and not knowing, all without judgement.
When I decided, years ago, to leave the legal world behind and enter the art world, I chose to take on the role of an anonymous spectator of the cultures and people I found along the way, which were unified through universally shared emotions, and the inner world of human beings.
The ‘woman’ who appears in my artwork is the channel I use to represent myself, reflecting these feelings.
My work aims to provide a beautiful interpretation of reality through imperfection and asymmetry. Therefore the women are imperfect, just like in real life—perhaps with a touch of melancholy, but always full of hope and strength. I focus on the importance of the little things in everyday life through my work, and try to put a smile on people's faces when they look at my art.

A key moment for me when I came back from Lisbon. In Barcelona I found the perfect place to develop as an artist, giving a new direction to my professional life. I resumed my painting studies, attending several workshops. It was in the Mediterranean where I exhibited my work for the first time, and my confidence as an artist grew.
