I was born in Barcelona in 1952. My grandfather together with my father, had a little carpenter’s workshop in the centre of Barcelona. I therefore practically grew up inbetween the wood, furniture, glue, sandpaper and varnishes used in the workshop. My professional life as an artist began in 1989, when I left the carpentry business, and dedicated myself full-time to painting.
The thing that really inspired me to become a painter was Vincent Minelli’s film ‘The mad man with the red hair’, based on Van Gogh’s life and his relationship with Gaugin. Together with a close friend of mine, who was also interested in art, we used to take boxes of paints (I took my father’s oils box) and head for the countryside to paint ‘au plein air’ landscapes which we captured in an evidently ‘impressionist’ style.
I paint the female form and femininity. Women give to me that peacefulness, sensibility, sexuality, and the maternal instinct. All of this stirs my emotions and provokes the need in me to trasmit my feelings on canvas. I want to make people understand that my figures are not just a woman - but a feeling of love, peace and shyness.
