I was born in Madrid, Spain. I have had a lifelong passion for drawing and painting. I have been using coloured pencils since I was a child, I have always liked painting. I have been using pencils since I was 10 years old. My first drawings at that age were with graphite, coloured pencils and pen, I liked drawing animals so much. I spent long hours drawing and painting for myself, my school friends and each painting was a new adventure to me. Basically, self-trained in the techniques of graphite and coloured pencil. When I was 20 years old, I started taking classes about 17 years with the painter Sarita Muñiz, who taught me how to paint with oil and pastels, a technique which immediately captivated me, and how to be better with pencils. Over the years I have been learning how to paint with pastels and, at the same time, I have been looking into the world of coloured pencils, how to perfect myself and go deeper into their secrets. I have done botanical paintings and experimental studies trying out different brands of paper and almost always using Faber pencils. I have improved my skills with coloured pencils for the last few years. Little by little I was facing bigger artistic challenges and about five years ago I decided to devote my time to coloured pencils. My goal for this beautiful technique is to become as popular as it deserves, especially in Spain, where people are really surprised to see what you can achieve with coloured pencils
