Biography

I was born in Madrid (Spain) 1973.

Skipping ahead, I started in 1991 Astrophysics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) where I finished my studies in 1997. After a couple of years working at the same university, I moved to England, where I spent seven years carrying on with my studies. Nothing to do with art so far. In 2006 a job came up at the European Space Agency (ESA) in Madrid and I took it, and that is where I am now living. Still nothing to do with art.

Since I have moved back to Spain, I have been trying to spend more and more time doing some painting and it got to a time in which I decided to start a web site to simply put my work online and see how it goes. Hopefully this will encourage me to do more things.
