Hello there! I am multidisciplinary artist based Barcelona, working as freelance illustrator and with almost ten years of agency and studio experience, as a graphic designer.

My work relies on my designer knowledge and my artistic capabilities. I passionately focus on capturing light, color and vibrance through detailed mixed media illustrations and paintings. Though subjects may vary, culinary references are a very important part of my body of work and life. Growing up, my house was ablaze with gastronomy, arts and crafts and classic films. I believe this is the reason I paint about food and write about cinema on my other blog.

If you are wondering how can we collaborate, I can help you with illustrations, editorial projects or print design, so feel free to contact me for commissions, collaborations or just to say hello!
