is a Spanish painter based in Palma de Mallorca, Balears, Spain.
She considers art as another language, another way to express yourself. She’s fascinated by the idea of reaching everybody around the world, whichever the language they may speak, and connect with them through her character’s emotions or stories. She wants the observer to identify with her own artistic idiom and to vent of all those feelings we all have felt overtaking ourselves at some point. To do that she creates internal conversations with the subjects of her paintings, they tell her what they want to transmit as she’s giving them shape. Once the character’s figurative part begins to become more clear, they will take over her work and express what they want. Then, this is the most terrifing but at the same time funniest part of the hole process: translating their wishes with stokes. Sometimes they are stubborn so a fight between me and those newly created persons begin as her primary idea vanishes and their’s becomes more fierce. Her oil work is amid figurative and abstract art, with an special touch of expressionism that characterize her personage’s soul.
