Throughout my childhood, the smell of turpentine and oil paint permeated the air. I come from a proud line of artists from whom I keep alight the legacy. As a painter, I have worked with the notoriously difficult subject, among others, of contemporary portrait. Among my works are portraits of the Infantas Doña Leonor and Doña Sofía as well as Her Majesty Queen Sofía. Having studied at the School of Applied Arts and Crafts as well as some well-known workshops in Madrid, I have a well-developed and varied web of professional connections. From the Faculty of Fine Arts in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, I have friends from the 88th formation with whom I participated in contests and exhibitions in several Spanish galleries. Via these connections, I had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles for 2 months, gaining a deep knowledge of American Art at the University of Los Angeles. Further along in my career, I was lucky enough to study with the well-known and highly-lauded academic, D. José S. Carralero. Moreover, I attended a meeting held by the famous D. Manuel Alcorlo at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. At the same point in my career, I opened my own painting workshop where I taught painting and drawing as well as portraiture at the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors—where I held a position on the Board of Directors from 2008 to 2011-. As an artist wildly and endlessly impassioned by nature, I render works with a central focus on the combination of children and animals. Implementation of collage as a compositional element in these works elevates them to a new level of intrigue and mystery. I have had a long and successful career with multiple awards to my credit.
