I started very young with watercolour and oil painting and then fire enamel and porcelain painting. I discovered glass at the National Glass Foundation (FCNV) located in La Granja (Spain) and trained also at Vitra with the Corning Museum team. I worked with glass producing unique objects and short collections, as well as pieces for everyday use and decoration, sculptures, and sometimes contemporary jewels. Until today I work partially, for commissions and for international fairs.
