The images I create are always inspired by human experiences and relationships.
I am particularly interested in time and memory.

In my personal work, I draw portraits of my close ones treating them as selfportraits, because they all are taking part in my creation. The technique I work most confortably with is drawing by pencil on silk, it because it allows me to portrait the transparency of souls by being able to see both front and back sides of the drawing.

I work as artistic engraver for the Royal Mint of Spain, specialized in intaglio techniques and burin engraving, so I tend to create very small format works and miniatures, usually combining drawing, painting and engraving.
My jewellery collections are focused on upcycling antique jewels. I try to make the most of these vintage pieces by painting miniatures on their surface, sometimes eyes bringing back that fashion trend from late 18th Century called Lover's eyes, when people used to wear jewels with portraits to remember their loved ones. Using the old Masters's techniques, such as gouache or watercolour on metal, ivory or gems, I give these old pieces a new life and meaning, getting one of a kind wearable pieces of art based on art history as result.

I love and enjoy to remember. Remembering is thinking. I create things preventing myself from the oblivion, hoping my work prevents others from forgetting as well: we all are recipients and  memories  are everything we contain... or wear ;)
