Isabel was born in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. She graduated in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and obtained a Bachelor’s Art Degree at Middlesex University of London where she was Erasmus student. She also became a Doctor in Philosophy and Education at the University of Valencia after doing research on feminist aesthetics. She wrote a thesis about the sculptor Louise Bourgeois within the field of art therapy and feminism.
Right after, thanks to a scholarship of the Japanese government, she attended a master's course at the Okinawa Kenritsu Geijutsu Daigaku where she studied the techniques of Japanese painting. Later on, while being a Canon Foundation Fellow, she did research about Japanese literature and art at the Tama Art University of Tokyo. After this, she was awarded with a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language by the Institute of International education in London.
Her teaching experience is related, on the one hand, to technical drawing, artistic drawing, arts and crafts and painting at several schools and Adult Education centres in Valencia. On the other hand she has been a teacher of Japanese language at the University of Valencia and other public and private centres.
Concerning her art work she has studied art and artistic tendencies deeply, exhibiting in Spain, United States, England and Japan. Influenced by artistic movements like impressionism, abstract expressionism and realism, her work continues to develop towards personal expression, exploring feelings through art. Something to be appreciated among her series of flowers, landscapes, portraits and other works that share both abstraction and figurative art influences.
She is also interested in illustration, as an art form, and her professional experience includes design consulting, logo design, book covers, posters or icons among other commissions.
