I have drawn all my life; it's innate, natural, and almost automatic. If I have a pen in my hand it's impossible not to be scribbling something. I received most of my artistic training during my childhood, in the School of Fine Arts os St. Eloy, in Salamanca, Spain. Later, during my time at University, my love for nature, botany and entomology led me to study forest engineering. I completed my engineering studies in Spain at the University of Valladolid and at the University of Santiago de Compostela, and pursed further training in Portugal at the Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra and also in Costa Rica at the University of Costa Rica. Also during these years I independently developed my interest in Science Illustration, learning both traditional and digital design techniques, in order to pursue a career in this mix of art and science.
