I.

 

I was born in Avilés, a small village in the north west of Spain, in the beautiful region of Asturias. When I was very little I used to like to play to dress up and I spent all my time writing stories, drawing magical worlds, building huts, sewing pieces of fabrics and pretending to be a prince, a witch or a mouse.

 

I have always been highlighted for my artistic way of enjoying life wherever I have been. If I am not an artist, I am no one, I am nothing. There was never any doubt what I would become when I grew up.

 

I graduated with a degree in Drama and gained a Postgraduate in Performing Arts thereafter. I continue to take acting, singing and dancing lessons with respected professionals whilst honing my skills in other artistic fields such as photography, costume, set design and film direction. I co-direct To Be Creative Ltd -a Theatre Company- and I am currently doing an MA in Creative Writing.   

 

I believe that an artist has to be multidisciplinary and I have a deep respect for our mission: to change the world. This, focuses all my attention as an artist, in whatever I do.
