I was born in Southern Spain.
I studied an MA Illustration at EINA, Barcelona in 2007 and live in that city since, working as a professional illustrator.
In 2017 I published Bea baila (Diana dances) in Spain. It was my first children’s book as an author and illustrator. It’s been edited in the USA, France, Italy, Turkey, and Russia.
I’ve just published my second book as an author and illustrator, Sirena de piedra (Stone Siren) in Spain by Tres Tigres tristes.
Tancho, one of my latest books published as an author and illustrator was published by Akiara Books in Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese, and by Les éditions des éléphants in France.
I collaborate regularly with newspapers, magazines and editorials worldwide.
Some other books I’ve published as an illustrator:

My work reflects a strong sense of colour and texture, a frequent use of traditional techniques, and an undercurrent of subtle humour running throughout.
