I was born in Seville in 1984. From a very young age I felt a deep predilection for pencil, colors and a blank sheet. I did not need much more to invent my own world. Although my first steps were with the comic, I soon began to train in classical painting and drawing, believing that it was the only road map. But I got bored of the canons, and I parked the art to look for other ways to connect with people.


After my first trip through South American lands in 2006, my fascination for the human, for the races and the different energies that surround the places and the people that inhabit them increased. I knew then how much some looks can say without words ... and I returned to painting as a new concept, free of ties and rules and based mainly on sensations and color.


After touring several countries, and after several years, I returned to the Peruvian-Bolivian highlands, where unexpectedly - and through a person I will always be grateful for - a charity project emerged drawing children and adults in disadvantaged rural areas. I knew the power of art to tear down walls, and this opened a door that would change my life; a means to bring this art to the people. Since then I began to combine study work with live drawing at events, also creating the "Menorca Caricatures" seal in the Balearic Islands, where thousands of people have already passed since its founding in 2013.


I'm still looking for new media ...


And you who have come this far, many thanks for visiting this space, done with so much desire and enthusiasm.
