About Me

Multi-disiplinary artist and educator passionate about teaching that is engaging and fun! After all, that's how we learn, isn't it?

I am an empathetic and caring teacher who listens to the student needs and I use a range of strategies, including participation, poetry, games and practical ways to break down themes, making arts accessible to everyone.

Inspired by the power that art has to connect people, I teach, curate and facilitate arts workshops for community groups, care homes and social projects. Participants not only learn, but are also encouraged to exchange skills.

I've also created a methodology to run participatory tours through creativity that I customize for these groups in galleries and museums in London, as well as for individuals and small groups upon request.

Creative mentoring for artists who wants to make a difference and stand out from the crowd! I have experience mentoring young people and people changing into an arts career. I also help artists from all stages of their careers successfully applying for grants. Let's embark together on this journey! Mentoring and coaching sessions include: - Find your Voice as an Artist - Writing About Your Art Practice - Developing Your Critical Thinking - Applying for Grants - Portfolio preparation - Spotting your challenges - Resilience for Creatives - Or just tailored to you needs. Please note that the 30min session is ONLY to talk through your concerns and how you'd like to work together in the next sessions. After the first session, we agree what the goals are for you and the number of sessions. I recommend a minimum of five session as it helps establishing trust, time to go through any challenges and for a positive transformational change. Please prepare for the first session: think of what's holding you back, challenges you're facing. But no need to worry much: it will also be an opportunity for me to learn more about your work and career.
Watercolour made easy is for everyone who wants to learn from sketch or who has experience and want to develop your skills further. I'm an experienced and award winning artist, passionated about watercolour. Here, I'm combining both my passions to share it with you! In this class, you'll learn how to use the brush to draw beautiful flowers, plants and (self-)portraits, from 'wet on dry' to 'wet on wet' techniques. The later is a technique that uses wet paint against wet paint or wet paper to create beautiful bleeds and blooms, allowing the watercolour paint to spread and blend. The results can be astonishing! FOR ALL LEVELS!

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

LIENZOS DEL SER: Clase 1 Comprendiendo la Arteterapia y Elaboración del primer Lienzo de vida.
"Mis clases de arteterapia son un espacio seguro y acogedor donde podrás explorar tu creatividad y descubrir nuevas formas de expresión. Las llamo "Lienzos del ser" y a través de diversas técnicas artísticas, como la pintura, el dibujo, el collage y la escultura, te invitaré a sumergirte en un viaje de autoconocimiento y sanación emocional. En un ambiente relajado y sin juicios, te guiaré para que puedas canalizar tus emociones, pensamientos y experiencias de vida en obras de arte únicas y llenas de significado personal. Cada sesión será una oportunidad para dejar fluir tu imaginación, liberar tensiones y encontrar nuevas perspectivas. No se requiere experiencia previa en arte, ya que el enfoque principal es el proceso creativo y la expresión auténtica. Aprenderemos juntos técnicas básicas, pero lo más importante será el viaje interior que emprenderemos a través del arte. Estas sesiones son ideales para aquellos que buscan una forma terapéutica y enriquecedora de manejar el estrés, superar desafíos emocionales, aumentar la autoestima y descubrir nuevas facetas de sí mismos. Serán un oasis de tranquilidad y crecimiento personal en un mundo ajetreado. Te invito a unirte a este maravilloso viaje de sanación y autodescubrimiento a través del poder transformador del arte. ¡Prepárate para sorprenderte con tus propias creaciones y para conectar con tu ser interior de una manera profunda y reveladora!" Como futuro participante de mis sesiones de trabajo te indico algunas de las informaciones adicionales que debes tener en cuenta, asegúrate de leerlas con calma y ver si resuenan contigo. 1) Disposición para explorar y expresarse: El arteterapia implica abrirse a nuevas experiencias y permitir que las emociones fluyan a través del proceso creativo. Te pido como participante que vengas con una mentalidad abierta y sin miedo a realizar toda clases de actividades, eres un gran artista y no quiero dudad al respecto :D 2) Respeto y confidencialidad: Dado que se trabajará con temas personales y emocionales, es importante establecer un ambiente de respeto mutuo y confidencialidad, y espero mantengas la privacidad de lo compartido durante las sesiones y si deseas que alguien te acompañe me puedes hacer la salvedad antes de comenzar. 3)Compromiso y asistencia regular: El arteterapia es un proceso gradual, por lo que se recomienda un compromiso de asistencia regular a las sesiones para obtener los mejores resultados. Lo ideal es que completes las ocho sesiones iniciales que manejan el aspecto de la Autoconfianza. Pero siempre será tu decisión lo que realmente valga. 4)Materiales básicos: Estas sesiones requieren de elementos básicos como un cuaderno de bocetos, lápices, tijeras, crayones, acuarelas, pinceles, recortes, madejas de hilos de colores, crayones pasteles y todo lo que se te ocurra y permita que tu creatividad fluya. 5) Ropa cómoda: Durante las sesiones es necesario que te desprendas de toda rigidez, es por eso que lo ideal es que tengas la ropa mas cómoda posible y que no tengas el riesgo de daño si surgiera alguna salpicadura. Anímate a ser el mejor artista. El ilustrador de tu nueva forma de ver la vida.

Acrylic Painting for beginners: mark making techniques, basic technical drawing and colour theory
Painting can be made easy for anyone trying it out for the first time, whether it's for fun or you want to make a career out of it. It is a great form of expressing yourself and diving into a new skill set which could open many new doors. With over 15 years of experience in painting and withholding a MA in Art, I would love the opportunity to share my passion and skillset to new starters who want to get into painting. My favourite thing to paint are seascapes, cityscapes and landcapes. I use bright colours and my most favourite art movement is Impressionism. Van Gogh and Claude Monet are my biggest inspirations into my style of painting. I have 2 years experience in education helping international students on their foundation art degree and I love to assist them in their progression to university.

Drawing teacher: I teach and strengthen children's talents in drawing and channel their energy into something useful to them
Teaching young children from the age of 6 to 13 years how to draw, express their talents, and release their energy in something useful, and make them able to express their feelings in a better and safer way. This also makes us know what the child’s personality is and what his nature is, and makes him adapt to express expressions in a proper way.
