biography·biografia

Nuri Negre. Ceramic artist.

I was born in Girona, near Barcelona, in 1971.

At the age of 18  I started to study psychology at university. After finishing my career I worked as a counsellor for some years, being ceramics and art studies, such as painting and drawing,  my hobbies.  I took part in several collective exhibitions and was given the first prize at a ceramic art competition.

In the following years my two sons were born and motherhood made me realise what my real interests and ambitions in life were. I had the opportunity to start working  with children, introducing them into the world of arts and crafts, inspired bythe educational philosophy of Waldorf Pedagogy and I still continuedoing  this enjoyable activity.

On the other hand, living in the country gives  me  the chance to enjoy the peace and silence I need, providing nature that I am surrended by many inspirational moments as well.
