I studied Arts and specialised in Illustration in Barcelona. I work as a Tattooist, Printmaker and Illustrator. I draw using a Bic Biro because I love the texture that it leaves on watercolour paper and how it translates afterwards when printing, especially with the Photopolymer priniting technique, because of the variety of tones you can achieve as well the amount of detail you can transfer onto the plate.
Lately I’ve also been experimenting with Chine Collé to add colour, create layers and subtle textures. I’m fascinated by the endless possibilites of Printmaking.As for the subject matter, I work with the dreamy and the surreal. I’m also very drawn  to old Encyclopedia engravings, especially those related to Fauna and Botanical subjects.

I have taken part in several exhibitions and fairs, including:The Festival of Print (2017)The Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair (both on 2018 and 2019)The Stour Space (“What lies beneath?” 2018)The London Illustration Fair (2019)The House of Illustrators Winter Fair (2019)

I regularly do exhibitions and events with a group of artists from the East London Printmakers.
