I was born in Spain in 1980 and have lived here most of the time except for five years I spent in New York in my mid twenties; It was then that I started painting following a friend’s insight. At the beginning I was an outsider or naif artist. This changed when I applied for a painting workshop with Antonio López; being around him and other painters in several workshops  over the  years,  helped me to become more aware and paint more truthfully to the way I see.

The trigger for my paintings are introspective sensations and thoughts which appear suddenly or over time. I give them shape as internal images and translate them through photography. This will be the reference to make the final painting using a projector and grids. Other times I paint from life assembling things or asking people to pose on a scene. As I learn more about the technique I am careful to keep that fluky initial impulse that drove me to paint from nothing.

I have lately come to see my work as an ongoing memoir and after some analysis I can see that all my paintings spring from challenging emotions and the efforts to soothe them.
