PASSION FOR COLOUR

BA in Fashion Merchandising, The American College for the Applied Arts - London

The artist was immersed in the international fashion world since childhood and it was this constant exposure that cemented her artistic restlessness and inspired her to study in different countries. These life experiences are responsible for her approach an creative vision reflecting a vast variety of influences. 

 

Her professional path took her initially to Johannesburg and London, where she worked as a Senior Fashion Buyer for the Edgars and Burton Group and  she was directly involved in the design of collections and textile prints. 

Her work for these multinationals implied numerous international travels, which contributed to establish an extensive and diverse artistic base. 

 

On her return to Spain she amplified her training by taking classes of restoration and painting. She gets involved in furniture design and was able to brilliantly culminate numerous projects for the private and commercial sector. 

 

Throughout her professional career there has been a consistent statement, led by her particular use of colour and the attractive aesthetics that she expressed on different  disciplines. Eventually decanting for a total immersion in oil painting.    

 

In 2016 she moves to Cape Town, South Africa, where she opened her new Art Studio and developed over the next four years several projects that included collaborations with interior design firms, as well as having her firsts solo exhibitions. 

 

At the beginning of 2020, Covid made her consider the convenience of moving back to Spain. She established her Studio in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, joining the art circuit of the island, having several solo exhibitions, participating in artistic proposals, and collaborating with prestigious businesses, while continuing with further fine art studies in the search of new ways to assist her career as a visual artist.

Her creative personality is also reflected in her taste for writing, having her own column in the trendy local magazine, Fama, where Clío  conveys her intense but joyful attitude as in her canvases.
