I was born in San Sebastián, 1979. I have always drawn, painted and coloured. I studied illustration at the Escuela de Arte Número 10 in Madrid. As a result of winning the Premio Apila Primera Impresión 2013 I was able to publish "Monstruo Rosa" ("Pink Monster"), my first illustrated children's book. It is a story about understanding diversity as an enriching factor of our society. "Monstruo Rosa" was also awarded the 2013 Aurelio Blanco prize by the city of Madrid. In addition, this book won the Golden Pinwheel Award for best international children's picture book at the Shanghai Children's Book Fair in November 2013. I currently live in Madrid and combine my illustration career with graphic design work for a number of clients. My work is focused on the development of illustration as a tool for education and the spread of community values.
