As far back as I remember, I’ve always been drawn to anything that held an aesthetic value. I strongly believe that beauty brings order and happiness and that it is a value that needs to be nourished.
Right after I graduated from Artemis, I started freelancing and did some projects directly for clients. The projects have been varied and have given me the opportunity to experience different aspects of my work.
As a stylist, my strongest points are my taste, my eye for detail, and my ability to translate an idea into something concrete. My work is often conceptual and I am strongest at the beginning of the creative process, right in front of the white canvas.
My own personal style has had a learning curve too. I was raised to love the Parisian flats, full of white wood and big windows, ornamented ceilings and classic furniture. When I arrived in Amsterdam, I discovered minimalism, and I felt drawn to Japanese art and the Scandinavian simplicity. Today, I find myself longing for wood, which is something that I rejected for years (having grown up with wall to wall reddish wooden living room cabinets from the Spain of the 70's).
While my tendency is to go for clean, classic and contemporary looks, the older I get, the more eclectic I seem to become. Probably because I have learnt to appreciate other styles that weren't known to me before.
