I’m an artist based in London and most of what I do is related to drawing, sketching, visual storytelling and digital painting. 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 my sci-fi project Xx Valkyrie Project, that would take the form of two illustrated books by the end of my degree.
Then I studied an MA in Art Education in Madrid where I worked as an 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 using watercolours, markers or different software like Sketchbook Pro or Illustrator.
One of my passions is visual storytelling, hence I’m writing and designing my own graphic novel, Angel People. It 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 with a strong relationship with the sea and sister of a Rock & Roll poet.
I’m also designing short stories in comic format which will be available for reading on my website soon.
