I chose to represent, speak of those images that move me and I will continue. Continuing the discovery of light reveals things and desires... I like beaches, fresh fruit and people dancing in Casamance. It’s great when I can catch the light and beauty of the Caribbean, Africa and Menorca in a painting. Everything you see and experience does my imagination. That’s why I like traveling and painting wherever I go, because I believe everything I see or experience is interesting enough to talk, and my tongue, I know now, is the color.
My relationship with plastic arts started when I was a young girl, influenced by my mother, who studied at the Fine Arts Institue in Toulouse, and my father, who is a professional photographer. For my artistic work I like to use big physical supports (canvas or wood) and diverse techniques such as coal, pastel, collage, ink, watercolors and oil. I prefer mixed techniques. Until now I had the opportunity to show my works in the cities of Bordeaux and Pau.
Self-taught artist born in Tossa (Girona), in 1945. His career as a painter started in 1967, by participating in competitions and showcasing his work in various Spanish cities. In 1976 he enrolls in an engraving course in Paris, where he lives for 2 years. In 1980, he travels to Carrara and starts sculpting in marble. In 2004, he incoporates the methacrylate as one of his main materials, which he considers to be very suitable for capturing his new ideas. For the past 2 years, he has been working with the theme of "freedom" (both physical and spiritual) in mind.
