Hi! I am a Spanish illustrator based in Cambridge, UK.
After studying Fine Arts in Madrid and working as a freelance illustrator for some time I decided to move to the UK. Here, I graduated from Cambridge School of Art with a Distiction in an MA in Children’s Book Illustration.

I marvel at those little moments that happen in everyday life and love creating small narratives around them.
I really enjoy working with lyrical, more abstract narratives, combining images and text to express personal thoughts and emotions.

I LOVE printmaking, and I always try to bring those magic textures and yummy colour overlaps into my illustration work. 

I’m passionate about nature and riddles, and secretly dream of becoming a private detective one day.
