Mentiradeloro is from Segovia, a small town in the center of Spain. This area is mountainous, she has always been surrounded by nature. Leafy forests, rivers, waterfalls. This is her favorite place, the place where she feels at home. Living in this wonderful environment has greatly influenced her work from the beginning, in some way, and she has tried to capture the feelings and emotions that she had in this place in her works.
Mentiradeloro began her career as an illustrator in 2010, sometime after finishing her degree in Plastic Arts, Graphic Design and Illustration in Segovia (Spain). In her early years as an artist, her pictorial work was essentially autobiographical, being her main aim to capture her feelings, concerns and her peculiar way of understanding and conceiving the world.
Currently, apart from being focused on the development of her own universe and creating countless commissioned portraits, she works as a freelance illustrator carrying out projects for clients from very different sectors and countries.
Mentiradeloro deals with illustration from an experimental perspective, creating her works scrupulously by hand combining different techniques and materials such as watercolor, colored pencils, indian ink, graphite, coffee and tattoo ink among others. She compliments this process with digital tools once the illustration is finished and scanned. She is passionate about experimenting, mixing and discovering new combinations.
Mentiradeloro is inspired by the works of Spanish artist Paula Bonet and the Italian artist Agnes Cecile.
