Where do you find your inspiration?

 I find inspiration in music. Especially epic music and film soundtracks. For me discover new music is searching for inspiration. When I find a melody that transmit me lot feelings and emotions, my mind starts creating an image. I tent to hear the determinate melody as much as I need until I have the completely image in my mind. The next step will be passing that image to paper to create the finally illustration, hearing the melody that inspire it constantly to transmit all the feelings into the illustration.

You can even find her work in Vienna!

What has been the best moment in your career?

The best moment in my career so far was having the opportunity of being in a fantasy festival in Spain as an illustrator. I could show my art and meeting amazing people that was following my art or discovered it in that festival, talked with them and having one of the best moments of my life.

What is your ideal day?

My ideal day would be waking up early in the morning, sketching a little bit while I’m having breakfast. Working in my illustrations or in my social networks. Spend some quality time too with my partner and my cat (love both of them!). And finish the day with a really good book before going to be. That would be a really productive and ideal (or idyllic) day! :P

Our ideal day would be spending time in this fantasy land!

Who is your role model?

I have few. Tony Diterlizzi, Jean-Baptiste Monge, Medusa Dollmaker, etc. I love fantasy and inspirational art.

 What is your dream project?

My dream project it’s that people would be able to recognize my style and my artworks as soon as they see it in a book. Like happens with artist like Tony DiTerlizzi, Benjamin Lacombe or Rébecca Dautremer.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?

Sketching, sketching and sketching no matter what.

 For what in life do you feel most grateful?

For having the opportunity to transmit in a piece of paper all that my imagination wants to create. It’s a really inspirational and relieving process. A little pieces of my experiences and feelings that I can share with people.

And you're certainly good at it!

 If you could work with another artist, who would it be and what would you work on?

If I could work with another artist it would be Tony DiTerlizzi, the author of The Spiderwick Chronicles. I love his style and his art. And I would love creating a similar book with him. That book it’s one of my favourite fantasy art books, it would be amazing being in a similar project with him.

 What's the single most important skill you've learned to be successful at creating art?

Be focus in what you want and what you love. Be passionate and true with your artworks, your style and yourself. Always trying to learn something new. And understand that bad and no-inspirational days can happen, so you have to embrace those moments too to learn from them and being a better artist. You can achieve that if you are focus in what you want.
