City & Guilds Of London Art School (BA Fine Art Painting, 2008 , 2008)

I was born in Majorca in 1978. I have just graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, Painting from City and Guilds of London Art School, having previously completed a LLB (Hons) in Law from Salamanca University in 2003.

Currently, I live and work in London.

My work comes from my interest in people and fascination with human experiences, especially emotions.

I have developed an extensive body of work exploring spectators and audience scenes. The power of these paintings comes through our human empathy.

My work explores the overall impact that scenes of spectators have on the viewer. I use these crowds as a form of expression to give the viewer a psychological experience.

My practise is based somewhere between figuration and abstraction, with a mixture of gestured and controlled marks, using the paint in a physical way.

I use colour to detach the paintings from reality, this helps me to explore what paint is able to make us experience: the idea is to capture some of those moments of gatherings for others to see, and wonder and feel and then move on.
