Artist and journalist (daily news on national TV Telecinco and El País newspaper) currently collaborating as freelance with the Ministry of Culture and The Culture Department of Madrid Community. Drawing was always a thing on me, as much as creating new things from scratch. At the beginning I liked to transform objects by mixing fragment out of context playing around with colors and shapes. After a while experimenting with reciclyng and ready mades, I came across Lalabeyou were I’ve started learning jewelry making techniques. I continued this learning-path later on at Ana Chantre’s workshop in Madrid.


I like to see my work as poetry taking form through lines, colors, volume and shapes. I think I’m always talking about underwritten stories that eventually take the shape of a piece in their need to get free and express. With my pieces I dive into emotions, exploring the depths of the soul. Tactile feelings on volume going from subtle to categorical, since among these extremes is where life takes place. Creative VOGUE award winning designer at Artistar Jewels 2018.
