About me

I am made in Spain and based in the UK. Working as a textile and product designer since 2010, I specialized in print and embroidery design. In 2013 I founded and ran the international brand, ‘The Lazy Jellyfish’ up until 2018. While designing for fashion and interiors, I am also developed skills in digital painting and worked as a trends researcher and analyst. Since 2018 painting has been my main creative practice, applying these works into different fields, particularly through textiles, like rugs or throws. I have also worked creatively with ceramics. My expanded interest in different mediums of art has led me to develop a strong collection of visual, sound, and set design projects.
