When and how did you become an artist?
Painting and drawing have always been an enjoyable activity when I was young. I also used to have boxes full of found objects like stones, pebbles, branches, bits of bright or coloured paper, lost buttons... I kept them in case they could be useful in the next cazy idea that would sparkle in my mind.
During university I barely had time to paint as I used to but after finishing a degree in Architecture and full of energy to take on new oportunities... I decided to change sunny Spain for a professional challenge in England.
Since then I have rediscovered my passion for painting and I am determined to develop it further.
Who or what are your inspirations and why?
I am in the process of finding the best method to express myself as an artist. I enjoy experimenting with different materials and techniques, and as a consequence, new ideas keep emerging and taking shape.
Art has the potential to touch your soul and it is amazing when that connection happens.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
There are so many places I would like to live in at least for a set period of time but when thinking of chosing a place forever I guess the ingredients would be: mountains and changing landscape, good food, sunny and warm, full of history and culture.
Having said that the South of Italy just comes to my mind :D
