Edurne's Biography

Edurne Riedel was born in Caja, Huesca, Spain in 1964, but grew up in Madrid. In 1992, Edurne began her studies in professional photography and graphics. In 1994, she completed her training, working in Photography and Light with photographer Julio Moya. Her professional career began to evolve when working with the Publicity and Graphic Design Department for Editorial Santillana, one of the most prestigious editorials in Spain.

In 1999, Edurne changed directions, focusing her comprehensive training in photography, to painting. She enriched her knowledge taking addition courses at private art schools. Her involvement at El Museo Thyssen-Borneisza and El Museo Reina Sofia has not only enhanced her artistic talents, but has, in addition, brought her closer to the art community in Spain.

In June 2004, Edurne had her first one-woman show entitled "El Femenino" containing 13 of her latest works. This exhibition was presented by COGAM, Madrid's Central Office, and her work received much acclaim. As a result of her exhibition, Edurne was interviewed on national radio, and she was featured in local newspapers and appeared on Spanish television.
