Earlier education in Spain and USA.
BA Hons fine arts at Ruskin
Anglia University, Cambridge, UK.
Graduate of Leith School of Art in Painting, Edinburgh, UK.
Based in Edinburgh but often travelling,
always thirsting to see the entire globe.
I was born in the North of Spain but
brought to the South immediately,
living in Granada’s coast since I was
a day old.
I’m adopted and without knowledge of
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 shape a
landscape. Each piece takes a very long time.
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…but in addition I focus
sometimes in creating an oscillation
between micro and macro scale,
delighting in creating a playful
ambiguity of perspective.
I currently am exploring water
(a very emotional element),
and in particular it’s depths.
