Born in Andalusia, I enjoyed my childhood surrounded by nature, light and wonderful traditions. When I was 19 I moved to Madrid to become a nurse, but in the process, I got lost in its museums surrounded by artists and graphic designer. I spent there 4 years of painting, writing and taking pictures. I moved to the UK in 2015 to work as a nurse in a dementia home while studying photography. Now, in 2020, I am finishing my BA in photography and getting ready to move to London next year to continue my dream to become an artist.
