I am an illustrator and street artist from Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Passionate about art from a young age, I have always been creating all through my life with some breaks to study a degree and master in Teaching Foreign Languages. I have studied life drawing in Hackney College. I am a member of different art collectives in Spain and London which has provided me with lots of contacts with people in the art world and art projects. I have participated in several collective exhibitions organised by Perro Flaco Art in Lanzarote and The Family collective in London. I would like to highlight also my participation in different street art paint jams like “Do One Cancer Paint Jam” on the 3rd of July 2016 where I painted a wall to raise awareness about breast cancer. I have also participated in “Femme Fierce” on the 7th of May 2016 with other female street artists who explored issues as gender inequality in society and the art world in their work. My work “Follow your reams” depicted a woman D-Jing vinyl records on the wall, urged women to forget about gender stereotypes and to follow their dreams. I have recently finished curating WOMAN Art Exhibition in the Hamilton House in Bristol. WOMAN was a dialogue between the artists about women’s issues and struggles in our contemporary society where I exhibited some installations about domestic violence and spray on paper stencil paintings about women’s fears and feeling of isolation.
