"An explosion of color, for when things look gray"
Monica Jimeno Romero
I was born on March 18, 1971 in Madrid, although my roots are purely Extremadura.
Since my childhood I loved the mixture of colors, textures, and as a good artist, all paper was good to capture my ideas. Every image, every smell or every moment was a good reason to paint, that is why during my academic training I always stood out in the plastic arts, although my parents did not realize where my future lay. While I was studying business management and administration, my desire for painting was growing.
When I was only 18 years old, I set up my company and there I had my first experience in the world of painting, thanks to the fact that I discovered a manufacturer of raw furniture in which I could design its range of products through my paintings and sketches, it was a success “I started to paint, without stopping to create.”
Due to a traumatic personal experience, I decided to believe myself and dedicate myself to what has really made me happy throughout my life “painting”.
In 2007 I started my solo career collaborating with franchises throughout Spain, decorating their stores with murals and large-format artistic paintings until 2012.
