Photography has always been present in my life, as in anyone’s, as means of documenting my history, my memories, my favorite people … but I never thought it could be a profession until about eight years ago, when I decided which could be a medium of creation and expression and I set to work to understand everything about it. From that moment, I began to study and learn and every day I work to polish and enrich my style. My way of conceiving photography is based on naturalness and spontaneity, with a vision very influenced by the vintage, a marked retro style and under the teachings of the photographers of the mid-twentieth century. For me it is a form of expression and means of transmitting emotions and feelings. I am fundamentally interested in the portrait, the human element in photography, and it is the discipline in which I am more comfortable and I am more prolific, whether it is documenting childhood, recreating stories through the self-portrait or capturing the essence of any model that is placed before my camera. In this process of definition has helped a lot the fact that my husband is a musician, because an artist always needs images, and also the birth of our daughter, because it is a luxury to be able to witness and conserve all the moments of her life forever.


In 2014 I participated in the collective exhibition “Mujer Mariposa”, a choral work of several artists that was born with the purpose of raising awareness in the fight against mistreatment, and later I ceded one of my works for the calendar of the Plataforma del Voluntariado de España , in which appears photographs like the Colita or Ouka Leele. That same year I collaborated in another collective exhibition, “Fashion Victims” (Euroyeyé, Instituto Jovellanos, Gijón), where four authors offered our vision of the world of fashion, with a clear pop influence. “Quince”, a vision about childhood, which opened in 2015 and was my first solo exhibition, has visited Gijón, La Coruña, Madrid and León. In April 2016 I inaugurated the “La Resistencia Sonora” in Granada, as part of the Book Fair program, which is composed of more than 30 images, portraits of musicians from the Spanish alternative music scene. At the end of the same year, I was awarded by the University of León in the First Photographic Contest against Gender Violence and the ASISA Foundation in VIII International Photography Contest with first prizes.

I currently work as photographer for Chelsea Editions and providing stock photos to Getty Images, as well as doing personal work and stocking various literary and musical publications. My photos are used on album covers and books, as well as advertising campaigns from around the world. My passion has become my profession, you cannot be much more fortunate.
