CV

Ceramic artist based in Bilbao. I graduated in Fine Arts at the UPV-EHU, Leioa. I studied an MA Master’s Degree in Ceramics (UPV-EHU) and carried out an internship in Sargadelos, porcelain design company.

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Contemporary Art, researching on feminist ceramic practices from the 70s and 80s until today. I am engaged in an Art based Research project, in which I combine art history and theory with my own interdisciplinary artistic practice. My works are mainly sculpture in ceramics, photography and performance.

Cofounder and organizer of Spoken Word Bilbao, team members are Laura Sam, Gaizka U. Loroño, Luis Menéndez, and Alain Torres. A non-conventional poetry event, which began in April, 2015. We have created Psicoclavo Fanzine, a booklet which combines poetry, illustration, and diverse 2D art.
