My practice reflects my attempt to capture the joyful details of daily life. They often appear insignificant, but I think that it’s their simplicity and the smallness what makes them special. While capturing these, I learn about the medium and the process. I am constantly learning and adding new twists to techniques new to me; what I love about linocutting is that it’s all about problem-solving!
I am heavily influenced by comics, cartoons and children’s books and my work reflects that – it’s cheerful, imaginative and with a cartoonish vibe. The main characters tend to be books and animals.
Sustainability: I only use environmentally friendly materials in my linocut prints – the paper I use is recycled (made from post-consumer waste, such as take away cups); I don’t use any solvents or harmful substances in printing or cleaning; the electricity in my studio comes from renewable sources and all packaging is plastic-free. All materials are locally sourced where possible.
I offer original linocut prints, giclee prints, digital drawings, greeting cards and hand-burnt wooden baubles (winter season only). Prices vary between £10 to £75.
I am a Spanish printmaker living in Worthing and I specialise in environmentally friendly linocuts. I am a member of the Lawrence’s Printmaking Club (Hove), where I regularly print my linocuts and dry point etchings. I find that lino cutting suits me perfectly – it’s physical, messy (if you want it to be) and always surprises you as you always work in reverse.
Aside from a short Printmaking course at Phoenix Art Space (Brighton) in 2018, I am self-taught, and I love the learning process – to me, printmaking equals problem-solving, so I constantly challenge my inquisitive mind!
My work has been exhibited in various exhibitions/events in the last few years, such as “Art Apart” (Jubilee Library, Brighton, 2020; BMECP, Brighton, 2021), I was selected in the Printmaking-only fair ‘Print & Press’ at Phoenix Artspace (Brighton), November 2021. I recently took part in the Worthing Artists Open Houses, Winter 2022 (venue 25).
