I’m a fine arts artist and illustrator. My work has been published in chinese, english, neerlandese, spanish and catalan, in paper and digital formats. Faithful to my HB pencils as my primary work tools, I’m inspired by the form, cultural expressions and children’s curiosity.

My work includes the creation of a 100-page illustrated children’s book from a collection of twelve stories crafted by migrants living in Spain today. The book, called ‘Contes que porta el vent’, has been donated to public schools and libraries in Barcelona.

I was born in Mexico. I was raised in the USA and have been living in Spain since 2003.
