About me

Hi!, I am Jose Maria Gonzalez, a South-Spanish guy currently living in the UK who wanted to become a shoelace untier as I found myself with a great ability to untie shoelaces, but finally became designer. I graduated in Fine Arts in Seville and then went to Falmouth to do the MA in Communication Design in order to complement my artistic education with a rather designy one. I think I am now somewhere in between. My like for creative stuff comes from my grand parents, a dental technician who created sculptures made up of dental resin, and the other one, a lawyer interested in bullfighting who had a unique a and bohemian lifestyle. I have been au pair, shop assistant and vigilant in a museum, all in the same day. I love cooking, running and drawing.
