BIO

I was born in Murcia, small city in Souther Spain in 1979.  When I was 19 I moved to France to study and became involved in the feminist, queer and anarchist movements. After having obtained a MA in Comparative Literature, I was admitted into a Arts School with my portfolio of queer zines. I moved to Montreal (Canada) in 2008 and I currently live in Toronto.  I am a professional visual artists, illustrator and the co-founder of drag/performance/drawing collective Colectivo Pez Luna / Moonfish Collective. I currently teach at Seneca College (York) and Lakehead University.
My work has been exhibited in Canada (Montreal, Toronto, St. Jonh's) as well as internationally in museum, galleries and festival of Europe (Spain, Netherlands, Germany), South Korea and Costa Rica. I have received the support in several occassions of Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council and Quebec Arts Council. My illustrations have been published by specialized magazines (HB, .dpi) and my articles and art have appeared in different publications (Oxford University Press, Interarts, etc).

ARTIST STATEMENT

As an artist using mainly drawing as a medium, my work aims to tell stories, mostly of what is not revealed to the eye but lives within our everyday reality. Specially those emotions, events and situations that are been kept hidden or secret because of social norms and conditioning. In my art I explore secrecy, silence and how art may become a tool for revealing, and therefore, making the audience and the artist aware.
