I like that Print

"I am a self-taught artist who dreams of illustrating children's books. Aside from painting a wide menagerie of animals, influences from my north western Spanish heritage mean that common themes in my work are the sea and its inhabitants, and a slight preoccupation with food. I use ink and watercolour and like to play with these to create colour clashes and strange textures"
Alfred and Wilde
