24/7 VALENCIA: CAN YOU TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION?
VIRGINA LORENTE: I was born in Valencia in 1973. I do not remember when I started drawing, I can only say that I have never left it since then. I love illustration, to tell stories and to convey emotions. I studied architecture and at the same time I continued my artistic training in the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UPV and later in the EASD of Valencia, in the specialty of Graphic Design, combining both disciplines, architecture and illustration, specializing in the field of illustrated architecture, urban and natural landscape and illustrated maps.
