Educated in Plastic arts, former teacher of drawing and ceramic for children in Sevilla, this Spanish artist lives in Brussels since 17 years, where the passion for fashion led her to work as manager and visual merchandiser in various boutiques, notably Chine Collection.
Given her eagerness for creation, she decides at the same time to go in for painting using a mixed technique based on the art of collage. Her talent will not remain unnoticed and she is asked to decorate with collage and graffiti works a clothing boutique in Sitges, Spain.
After having designed several hats for a theater show “The wizard of Oz”, played in her native city, Leocadia starts to create a very unique and stylish collection of handbags made with crochet-work. Totally handmade, combination of pure geometric shapes and flaming colours, these handbags have a great success in Sitges.
Eager for new challenges, Leocadia chooses to apply this home-made technique to the upholstery of furniture. She makes her first try on a seventies armchair and recovers it using a plenty of wool balls of different colours.
The result is a complete rebirth. Her remarkable skill of creating a “patchwork”, where every color supports and emphasizes the others, gives to this object a fresh contemporary touch.

This modern house boasts a 180-degree view of the water outside – a breathtaking sight – and its main living level sits above the rooftops of neighboring homes, putting them quietly out of sight. Just outside the sliding floor-to-ceiling windows, a 19-meter lap pool seems to spill seamlessly into the ocean outside. On the other side of the glass, a clean and contemporary kitchen overlooks barbecue bench and deck.
The main bedroom sits on the street-side of the house. At the opposite side, a sitting room is enclosed in glass walls, bringing the endless view right into the living room and rivaling the television any day of the week. A contemporary, modern polished staircase leads down to the lower level, which houses a shared bathroom and two bedrooms opening onto a courtyard – all this, tucked directly beneath the lap pool and the upper sitting room.
The kitchen has sliding windows onto an outside barbecue bench and stacking glass doors open to the deck and lap pool. At the sitting-room end of the space, glass is mainly fixed, with a pair of sashless windows providing cross-ventilation.
