Amaya Iturri

Where were you born and where do you live now

 San Sebastian, Melbourne


I love painting...

I do like to paint everything

I was trained...

Basque Country University, Bilba

I like to work...

Early bird, mornings

I decided to become an Artist when...

I think it was a natural progression, not really a decision

If for some (horrible) reason I couldn’t be an Artist I wouldn’t mind being…
