I am an artist and photographer originally from Valencia, Spain, but now based in Croydon, South London. Before I became an artist I was a Physicist. The career change has been interesting, to say the least.

 

After I started drawing and painting on my own I enrolled in a part-time Art and Design Foundation course at City College Brighton and Hove in Southern England, which was an incredibly fun and formative experience. I then moved on to a 2-year Portraiture diploma at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in London where I learned about oil painting and the human figure.

 

Even though I still work in a figurative way my interests as an artist are very diverse and I am increasingly feeling the pull of abstraction. I often feel drawn towards different techniques and approaches and I find that developing more than one line of work at the same time refreshes me and adds depth to my practice.
