Biography

Since I was a kid I was always trying to create something inside my daydream world, opening and closing doors, and many times without knowing where I was going to...but ever after walking...

Anita was born in Barcelona, 1972. She has a Fine Arts Bachelor degree in painting from the University of Barcelona and a Textile Art&Design High Degree Top Technician of Printing and artistic Dyes. Daughter of a catalan father and an andalucian mother, feels life as a pleasure for the small and beautiful things. Big hearted for animals and Mother Nature, which are evidently captured on her latest works.
She had exhibited throughout Europe and started to sold the majority of her art worldwide when she was living in London and met the great artist Samantha Barnes from 1998 to 2005 through Pond Galleries: “Her inspirations of town and landscape are evident in all her works, as is her love of colour, her art is refreshing and uplifting, and convey her unique talent of placement and line in a wonderfully naïve composition. Also did a children illustration short course at London Central Saint Martins College.
After the London period painting fairytale towns she came back to Barcelona and started to paint a series of women and also teaching screen-printing and working as a freelance illustrator at Sales Magazine.
At the present time she is working as a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer on her own brand Etsy shops Anitasmile and Jackmarino.
