When she finished her studies, she worked like Art Director on Sm2, a publicity agency, using her free time to make works by order, book covers or editing an anthology of comic Shade.
In late 2005 started her colaboration with Norma Editorial, publiching with them her first recopilation of illustrated stories, Forgotten, a multi-volume work translated to several languages.
