About

“There is no exquisite beauty… without some strangeness in the proportion.” ― Edgar Allan Poe

Being born and raised in Barcelona, I was always surrounded by art. The works of Picasso, Miró, or Dalí, which are prominently displayed around the city, provided me with endless sources of inspiration, so I guess you could say that I was predisposed to have art in my life.

I attended the University of Hawaii and pursued a BFA in ceramics. Clay was the medium that allowed me to express myself, evolving from abstract forms and very basic shapes to the figurative work that I am making these days.

My sculpture tends to be a little bit darker in content. I am drawn to artwork that either you love or hate (no gray area.) My pieces are personal in nature, and most of them have some kind of story behind their creation.

I mostly handbuild my work and use earthenware. I tend to experiment with color and texture, and along with glazes, I will use a variety of different techniques in order to obtain the desired finished look to my work.

My artwork is one of a kind. Please feel free to browse through the image galleries and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I always welcome comments and feedback from people who feel a connection with the art that I make.
