Located in Madrid, Irene studied fashion design and specialized in print creation, and went on to work for fashion companies such as Zara. By 2013, she made the decision to change her path. Though she was hesitant about restarting her career, she always had an ardent interest in jewelry design. Irene took the plunge and started her own online jewelry store, CACTO, and now actively collaborates with other jewelry designers. Her photos attempt to capture the textures and colors that she is always searching for, even in the banal surrounding of everyday life.
