@monicamorenoart

I was born in Barcelona a while ago. Since I was little I was very interested in drawing so ​​I ended up studying illustration at Llotja Art School and was a professional illustrator for some long years and was also a teacher in Escola Massana Art and Design School until I woke up spiritually (that’s also when I became interested in ceramic sculpture).

Then I left everything in Barcelona and moved, first to Australia, and later to New Zealand. I spent 5 years down there, learning about nature, intuition, healing and of course ceramics. I met beautiful people and had lots of enriching experiences that inspired me deeply. In New Zealand, I was working in King Street Artworks, an art center for people with mental health issues.

I came back to Barcelona when I felt it was time, and was a bit unsettled for a while, but slowly I found my way. I’ve been making ceramic sculptures all these years, my main theme is the Goddess, and I’ve also been making sacred objects to use in rituals and ceremonies. I also keep on drawing, and I teach illustration workshops in Escola d’Art La Industrial and ceramic workshops every now and then.

I currently have a coworking space at 137degrees an international ceramic studio in Poblenou neighborhood. If you are in Barcelona you are welcome to visit me (just let me know before to make sure I’m there).
