BFA Fine Arts at Universidad Complutense de Madrid and MA Communication Design at Tracor Institute of Communication Arts.
More than seven years of experience as UI / UX designer in companies such as Multivent, Aufeminin Group from Axel Springer and BBVA Next Technologies where I have been able to learn and evolve as a design and communication professional in multiple settings, from image design for virtual events to online media even the fintech sector. It was in 2019 when I decided to start as a freelance illustrator and designer.
I am passionate about the character's relationship with architecture and nature. How he conceives it, how he moves in it and the way he experiences it. I love to imagine small situations and feel identified with the moment I draw in one way or another.
As a child, while others played in the park, I spent the afternoons reading plant books and making my own herbarium, drying leaves and flowers in books and newspapers. I suppose that stays there and little by little it also appears in my illustrations: in the desire to make collections of moments, capturing elements from nature, in the stillness of the places that I capture ...
I am inspired by everything I am a fan of: artists who have influenced me, albums I am obsessed with, books or series that I devour, movies ...
