I was born in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, a small town next to Barcelona, Spain, where I approached art for the first time. At the age of 8, encouraged by my grandmother, I started art lessons in a small art studio in which I learned various techniques such as oil, acrylic, charcoal and watercolour painting.

As I grew older, my passion for painting didn’t go away, and I started to develop a love for another form of painting: make-up. I enrolled in a Superior course in film, TV and fashion makeup with characterisation and prosthetics.
In this course I learned to express art through the body, being able to give it a 3D shape. Starting from aesthetics doing professional makeup for television to body painting and creating facial prosthesis to change the look and model it.
After that I arrived to Kite Studios, where I was given the opportunity to learn Pottery and all the process behind it. I had also been doing voluntary work there, where I could really learn what it entails to run a studio. Slowly and through hard work, I have been growing and improving thanks to Auriol, who showed me everything with a different point of view. And I hope with time I will keep learning and continue contributing to this magical studio.
