This is a series of work on paper that includes gestures of graphics made with acrylic and the use of tissue paper pasted on the drawing to interfere with the composition and take advantage of the transparency of the paper. There are geometric and emotional expression that oppose each other and form these compositions that arise from opposite poles.
The predominant color is red over black gestures and the support is white textured paper.
The drawing strips are 50 cm high by 15 cm wide and are mounted on other paper that measures 50 cm high by 32.5 cm wide. They bear the signature on an MS seal and are also signed on the back and a certificate of authenticity is delivered.

I am the third of 8 siblings, daughter of a doctor. I was born in Avilés, Asturias, in February 1957. My paternal grandparents lived in Cuba and at 9 months with my parents and my two older sisters I spent a month there shortly before the revolution.
My approach and taste for landscapes and nature began as a child with the summers in Bañuges, a small fishing village next to Cabo de Peñas in contact with the sea, going fishing by boat. Also with the excursions to Picos de Europa with my parents and brothers, which later became long days of skiing.
My Cuban grandmother was a painter and that helped me at home when I started to draw and paint to prepare for the entrance exam at the San Fernando School of Fine Arts in Madrid.
I started to prepare in Avilés with Santarúa where I did my first spots and when I finished high school I went to Madrid to continue preparing for admission.
I attended drawing classes first with Amadeo Roca and later with Francisco Merallo. And I studied Fine Arts at the School of San Fernando in Madrid.
I learned to paint with oil, but from 1987 I switched to acrylic, which allowed me great freedom of work: "I finally didn't have to wait a lot of days for that red that I wanted to put elsewhere to dry." I did not change brushes, acrylic brushes are softer, or fabric, because I continue to use Lino Velázquez with which I achieved as good results as with oil. In recent years I also work on MDF board which allows me small variations in texture due to the support. I also do work on paper, collage and sculptures in wood and recycled materials and I make sculptures with papier-mâché painted with acrylic.
The theme of my work is nature, landscapes and its details. My landscapes represent states of mind. The role of chance and chaos is reflected in my latest works.
