Her work was shown at the 8th Biennal of Contemporary Textile Art (WTA) Madrid where she won second prize photography textile art. She exhibited in Chicago, Illinois and took part in art fairs as URVANITY and ESTAMPA in Madrid.  Using mixed media and exploring different materials, Nanon explores a narrative where she is the covert protagonist, seeking to reflect her relationship with the world. Among her most recognisable works are intriguing figures made from recycled materials – rope and plastics from Andalusian greenhouses – as well as knitted and intervening objects.  «Woman» is the most recent theme in Nanon’s work, portraits of women who are both strong and vulnerable, interpreted as a reflection of themselves. «All the women I create are myself looking for different roles and sensations».
