She was already keen on painting when she was still a child. She studied drawing and painting with Raimundo Anido. In 1996, she took a degree in Fine Arts in Pontevedra, specialising in Design and Audiovisual. Then, she devoted herself to graphic and web design, working for several firms in A Coruña, Madrid and Ferrol and giving courses on web page design and digital retouching in several Galician villages. During her stay at San Ciprián, she got in touch with people related to art and found the necessary inspiration to take up painting again.
