about me: 

I was born in Zamora (Spain) in 1969, grew up in a small town called Toro and later lived in Oviedo. In 1987, after spending a few months in Paris, I moved to England. In February 2010 I emigrated to New Zealand and currently live in Richmond, in the Nelson area.

I studied at Goldsmith’s College in London and then at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Music. After my graduation I started to work as a graphic designer and art director for a few advertising companies.

Since January 2002 I’ve been working as a full time artist, putting all my energy into painting, illustrating and promoting my own creative company (Sugarcube Studios).

My work has been published in several magazines and I have exhibited in the following galleries: Legacy Gallery in Odiham (2007), Sala Naos in Santander (2008), Farnham Maltings (2009), Ochre Print Studios in Guildford (2009), Chalk Hill in Guildford (2009), The Bhavan Centre, Institute for Indian Art & Culture in London (2010), Fundación Vela Zanetti, León (2011), Espacio Creativo, Laredo (2011), Nelson "The Bridge Street Collective" (December 2013), Little Beehive Co-op, Nelson (May 2014), Art Expo, Nelson, (July 2014), The Old Post Office Shop, Upper Moutere (November 2014), Reflections Gallery, WOW museum, Nelson (November 2014 to January 2015), Matchbox Studios, Wellington (January 2016), Kina Gallery, New Plymouth (January 2016).
