Andrino's childhood was spent in the city of Madrid. She lived in Ibiza, London and Madrid. She studied fine art in Universidad Complutense de Madrid and she has the doctorade of sculpture.

Andrino's art has come to America, working with galleries of Valliart, in Miami. She was also selected by her alma mater, along with three other artists, to represent the University at the College of Spain in Paris (Quatre Peinture et sculpture).


Andrino use different materials for her works, among which may be mentioned paper mache, cement, sand, cardboard, wood and iron, among others.

For six years her work has addressed the issue of the crowds, human groups and what areas they occupy. This has produced a dramatic piece of art, because the fact that it has human content also makes this dramatic content. It also delves into the world of words. The artist defines her work saying that the sculpture is pictorial and sculptural painting and the painting is first and second is relief.

The predominant color in his works is red, which purports to represent the drama of the crowds on a sea of white. This color, red, has been key to the life of Andrino, it has touched many aspects of her life. According to her it is the color that gives coherence to their works, acts as a wire and you could say that is the hallmark of the artist himself, that is, the color that characterizes her works. The artist is moved by emotions and sees the red like one of them, giving a fiery and blood symbolism. The material often used in her sculpture is cement, but also uses sand. For her these materials give a telluric aspect of her work and the link to the summers of her childhood in the home of her grandparents, representing humility. Her sculptures are of a large size, full scale.

In all aspects of her work is the theme of childhood. Cement represents the playground and park, where children have fun together and learn traditional games. These sculptures represent the public space, the place where children should have fun freely. Childhood is a key theme in her work because it is the first period of life, which is appropriate, and that marks adulthood as Andrino.

The main influential painter and sculptor in her work is the German neo-expressionist Anselm Kiefer, who got the idea of large volumes. Andrino considers that the sculptures of large volumes should be exposed in large public platforms and establishes a direct correlation size / expression, that is, to express great feelings, emotions and sensations need to do it through large sculptures to be exhibited in large spaces.
