Where are you from and where do you currently live?
As the song says, "I was born in the Mediterranean..." but I grew up and lived in Asturias until I was 20, later spending a good time in London and ending up on the island of Mallorca, where I currently reside, like many others. artists.
Where would you say your home is?
In both Asturias and Mallorca I feel at home, I couldn't separate myself from either place and I hope to have a little house facing both seas in the future.
What does a typical day on work and also a day off consist of?
Every work day is different, since some are spent painting in the studio, others creating content...although I like to maintain certain routines within this lack of monotony.
A day off is not much different from the previous ones, because I love my job and the lines are not totally defined, although I do have my periods of disconnection. For example, many mornings my boyfriend and I go for a quick swim in the sea and have breakfast, and we always leave our cell phones at home.
How did painting become one of your main tools of expression?
It has always been part of my life since my parents are also artists and they were the ones who taught me how to paint. From a very young age they have allowed me to explore my creativity through all the plastic arts and have supported me throughout my career.
What inspires you?
The list is endless, but I would highlight mid-century design, architecture, minimalist fashion from the 90s, the Mediterranean... I can spend hours looking at references in books or on Pinterest.
What is your favorite place in the world and why?
At the moment I would say Mallorca because I am very happy living here. I feel inspired, with a couple and a group of friends full of talent, with whom I spend the day exploring every corner of the island, which is beautiful in itself, but these factors make it even more special.
