Having grown up in a family of artisans from different disciplines, and after having experimented with various materials, I opted for metal and jewellery: working with fire and adapting small sculptures to the human body and thus providing them with life and movement, attracted me enormously.
In the year 2000 I started my Fine Arts’ education at the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU), and in 2002 I started my studies in jewellery. In 2004 I entered as an apprentice in a jewellery workshop, and in 2008 I opened to the public my own small workshop, the studio where I am still working nowadays.
I continue in constant training attending courses of techniques that interest me, from 2013 on with less intensity since I am also raising my children.
In these years I have won the following awards:
-“Villa de Bilbao for young artisans” 2003 (organized by the Association of craftsmen Biartea)
-“Blas Arratibel” 2008 (organised by the Provincial Council of Araba)
-‘Ikas-art’ 2010 (organised by the Provincial Council of Bizkaia)
-“ExperimenTarte” 2012 (organised by the Association of craftsmen Sortzen, Bilbao)
I have also held monographic and collective exhibitions, including: ValorArte Bilbao 2011, ArteAtaria at the Dómine Bilbao Hotel 2014,…
