ABOUT ME

I’m a sculptor and mixed media artist based in Leicester. My current work is on experimental research of sustainable materials such as sugar and the creation of totems of happiness called chibimonsters.

I started working with clay at the early age of six with ceramic classes for almost seven years. I continued my artistic training through the theoretical path, finishing my BA in Art History in 2015 at University of Málaga (Spain), and my MA in Cultural and Artistic Management in 2016 at University of Winchester (UK), which have influenced my artistic practice.

My artwork is based on the research of sentimental and ideological expression, combining various materials in order to create synesthesia between the tangible (such as sculpture) and the intangible (either through lights, sound or writing). I draw inspiration from storytelling; Pop Art and the imagery of comic book art.
