Conchita was born in 1961 in Stuttgart Germany to Spanish parents.  In 1969 she migrated with her family to Australia and went to school in NSW.  She went on to complete a Graduate Fine Arts Course at the School of Arts Sydney in 1982 and continued post graduate work in Fine Arts in 1983 and 1984.

Conchita’s work is born of an unrelenting passion for the process of creating art and the love of interacting with the canvas.  Her technique is highly refined after more than 25 years as a successful artist, working with both canvas and paper and playing with the subtleties of colour, light and form. Her schedule can be demanding by the standards of many artists -- up to16 hours on any day – but her fine art background, experience and passion show in every layered mixed media composition.

Her current paintings inject a small element of the figurative into her abstract layers while making strongly individual interpretations of her natural surroundings and experiences.  Viewing her work remains both absorbing and complex and it is these intriguing aspects that have had Conchita’s paintings and story featured in architectural, art and interior design publications since 1991.

Conchita is a very well established, collectible artist and her work is recognized by major collectors, including a specially commissioned painting for the National Library, in Canberra.
