BIOGRAPHY

I grew up in Spain where I studied Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca. As far as I can remember I have always enjoyed drawing and writing stories, my work is driven by story-telling. 

I graduated with Distinction in 2016 from the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art.

The MA in Children's book illustration has given me a great opportunity to experiment further with my work and even to create my first picture book as author and illustrator with Walker books.

'That fruit is mine!' Out in April 2018! Published by Walker books. 

I have also illustrated a picture book with Nosy Crow 'A Bear is a Bear (except when he's not)' written by Karl Newson. Published in March 2018!!

I love exploring texture in my work, and use mixed media, including print-making, handmade stamps and stencilled shapes. I really like working with colour as well as with black and white images.
