I’m an artist based in London. I love making comics, illustrations, concept art and life drawing. I like to visualize and create characters and environments for stories, particularly at pre-production stage.
I’m from Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. I studied the first years of my BA in Fine Arts in Salamanca and the last three in Valencia where I focused on illustration and pre-production of film and animation. While studying for my BA in Valencia, I worked as in-house designer for a music agency and in a contemporary art education project in a primary school.
During my studies in Valencia I wrote the story and developed the concept art of Xx Valkyrie Project, that would take the form of two sci-fi illustrated books by the end of my degree. This experience triggered my passion for concept art and visual storytelling.
Then I studied an MA in Art Education in Madrid where I worked as Art Assistant Teacher in a secondary school.
After my studies, I moved to London where I’ve worked as graphic designer, drawing teacher, imaging specialist, photo-lab technician and illustrator on commission.
I’ve exhibited my illustration work in Valencia, Madrid, A Coruña and London.
I often work on commission for private clients. Sometimes I design caricatures on request, stylized versions of the models like Soul Monkeys or Marcia’s Portrait. Other times I’m commissioned to design and develop complex concepts like the recent series of The Eight of Hearts.
I like to use both traditional and digital tools. I usually draw with pencils on paper and colour digitally in Photoshop. Depending on the project I may use other techniques: watercolours, markers or different software like Sketchbook Pro or Illustrator.
I'm a comic artist, I write and draw my own stories. Comics are highly artistic and contain such a flexible language that allows to do... whatever you want and that's just fantastic! I'm creating The Earth Blues Series, a bunch of short stories about we, humans, and our planet. You can read the first two stories Marghera Blues and Forehead Blues in this website.
I’m also working on my own graphic novel, Angel People. This is a stylized vision of my life experiences in London. I wrote the story inspired by Chapel Market (Angel Islington), the Caribbean community, the London music scene (particularly Punk and Heavy Metal) and my own identity as a female Galician emigrant.
