Drawing for me is an exercise of personal and creative inquiry.
I have been drawing since I was a little girl. I even went to complete a course at the Faculty of Fine Arts where I thought artists were formed.
I then went onto work for various graphic design agencies. After that I started to work as teacher, a job that I still do and that enables me to explore a subject that I am particularly interested in: drawing as a way of manifesting your talent and the “difficulties” of doing so from an early age.
Guided by this interest and my curiosity in human behaviour, I commenced the task, the ever-developing task of getting rid of everything that I had learnt and rediscovering the creative pleasure of drawing.
This task took the form of my self-published book “Ejercicios Espirituales” (Spiritual Exercises). It is a compilation of the drawings I did for a year on sketchbooks and on large canvases. I shared the creative process on social media, and I managed to showcase the result at different exhibitions across the Canary Islands where I reside.
In my work I tend to use myself as the model and I normally draw myself in very impossible and uncomfortable poses as a symbolism of this vital journey.
I become a mere tool in the process of drawing. I let unexpected images appear, they use my personal experiences and I use them as an excuse to connect with my other self and the world. However this is just on the surface as there is not such a thing as other or a separate world.
This is the way I draw.
This is the way I create my own sense.
