“I am a Catalan illustrator and urban sketcher currently based in Barcelona. I love drawing and painting people, landscapes,buildings, life, light and movement, in a realistic style which enhances the expressiveness of colour through mixed media and watercolours.

Barcelona, her character and the Mediterranean light are an essential influence on my work. I also love travelling and take any opportunity to portray other places.

I have been an urban sketcher in Barcelona since 2011, participating in group exhibitions as well as in the 4th International Urban Sketchers Symposium (World Symposium) as a member of the organising committee. I lived in Oxford for a few years, and I hope to go back soon.”
