Born near the mountain of Montseny, the close relationship with nature is a very important factor in her work. She started making ceramics when she was 7 years old, when she realised that playing with the earth, she could create volumes related with nature. Her university training initially passes through technical engineering of food industry, which would be useful to acquire a knowledge of physics and chemistry very helpful for the world of ceramics. To expand her knowledge in the artistic field, she studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts and make a ceramic itinerary in Japan, visiting Arita, Tokoname, Seto, Tokyo, Tajimi, Nara, Kyoto, Nagoya and Shigaraki.
