As she was brought up in a family of photographers, she already showed her interest for photography since she was a girl. When she was eleven, she began to attend seminars and conferences with her father. In 1992, she carried out her first exhibition and went on with many others all over Spain. In 1996, she graduated in Photography at ‘Maestro Mateo’ Art School. She also attended stylism and makeup courses, specializing in portrait and fashion picture as well as in advertising. The Spanish Federation of Photographers awarded her several merits and collection of honour. She gave her first lecture on fashion and young people (‘Nuevas tendencias’) in Valencia (Cullera, 2000) and many others all over Spain and abroad. She was nominated in the Goya Prizes in 2001 and was awarded prizes in Asturias and Valencia and the Portrait Prize in Navarra in 2003.
