I was born in 1979 in a little coastal town called Ondarroa, in the Basque Country. I was raised and immersed to the world of painting and illustration an early stage spending the hours drawing in my grandfa´s lap while my parents continued their studies. However, they soon realized the drawing was not a mere child hobby but a passion for me.


In primary school i would just be able to focus with a pencil in hand and letting my imagination fly away.


At the age of 17, i left my hometown to move to San Sebastian and study 3 years of Graphic Arts. After this experience i decided it was the moment to jump to the big city, Barcelona, where i continued studying Graphic Arts for three more years, time that made me perfect different techniques of drawing and painting. In order to pay for my studies, i worked in various projects of full-length, short films and different film producers in Barcelona as well as in Madrid, stage in which i got specialized in storyboard and support in campaign designing for a number of prestigious directors and advertisement agencies ( Young&Rubicam, Bassat&Ogilvy, etc...).


Trying to leave no stone unturned, as it said, i decided to step by myself and initiate this project that had been long postponed. After working in some of my canvas for commisioned work, i decided to prioritize this and i remembered that time with my grandparents. I realized that although i was told i cannot live from my passion. This was the thing that made me proud. Happyness of being able to work long hours in my studio and seeing the result of my work.
