I was born in Madrid in 1988.

I cursed studies on illustration in the art school artediez. In 2012, after the final career project, I leave Spain and moved to The Hague, The Netherlands, where I started working as freelance illustrator. Since then I have worked on multiple creative and art projects, illustrating album covers, film posters, book characters, animations, advertising posters, books...

 

In 2014 I moved to Portugal where I lived 5 years. There I co-founded the cultural space Casarão da Lua, in Sintra .

 

In 2018 my first book Preferiría ser amada was published by Nórdica Libros, an anthology of poems, letters and envelope poems of the american poet Emily Dickinson. The book won the National Prize for the best book published in 2018,

Primer Premio Nacional al mejor libro editado en 2018, categoría divulgación.

 

 

I'm mother of two girls and currently I live in Castres, south of France.

I am the founder of the project El Espectro invisible de Medea, about motherhood and creation. The objective of the project is to share and make visible the artwork of women who are also mothers. We talk about what means to create and rise our children at the same time and many times same space. We talk about the artworks throughout history that are linked to motherhood, non-motherhood and all the topics/taboos that surround all kind of motherhoods. We also interview artists, create ans share art and save an archive of the life and perspectives of women artists in the history of art who were mothers.
