I was born in the North of Spain but  brought to the

South immediately, living in Granada’s coast during

my first 18 years, I then lived in other countries but I 

am now based in Edinburgh, where I have my wee

family.

I’m adopted and without knowledge of my biological

family. This influences my work in my choice of

elements, I work with earths in a need to ground my

energies and emotions.

My practice is an ongoing dialogue with materials I

mainly source from nature. Responding to their

qualities and colours, I layer, erode, polish and

build up the surface in a process of creation and

destruction that echoes the geological forces that

shape a landscape. Each piece takes a very long

time to be completed.

The resulting works are immediate, tactile, weighty

objects inspired by the abstract patterns found in

nature.

I’m interested hugely in the vibration that colours

provoke when placing them beside each other, my work

should be seen at a very close distance really…In

addition I sometimes focus in creating an oscillation

between a micro and a macro scale, delighting when it

provokes a playful ambiguity of perspective.

I currently am exploring water (a very emotional

element), and in particular it’s depths.
