I am illustrator based in Mallorca. I am also a Bachelor Degree in Environmental Science. So, I love Nature so much as Illustration and I try to mix them always when it is possible.

I have produced artwork for a wide range of projects, including murals, promotional campaigns, animation, educational materials, interactive e-books and picture books. I love design and realized artistic workshops and talks around the world.

My illustrations have featured in many Children’s Picture Books published in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Swahili. I have won several international awards, like Best Illustrator Silver medal at the Moonbeam Children Book Awards 2013, First prize Best illustrated Picture Book at the International Latino Book Awards 2015, and the UNESCO Chair of Literature Selection 2017, among others.

With a magical-realistic and colorful style, I like to transmit love and optimistic worlds full of hope and passion.
