About your mentors
Suffolk Libraries
Where I belong.
We’re the independent charity that runs Suffolk’s library service. We nurture children’s literacy, support vulnerable people and promote wellbeing across Suffolk.
Toto (Antonio Reche Martinez)
Creation is life, life is creation.
I am a Spanish National and an Artist. My love for the different arts disciplines make me an all round artist. I have my degree from the London School of Fashion in special effects for movies and theatre. This three year course provided me with ample knowledge in make-up costume, sets, puppetry and special effects. I then worked 9 years in a pantomime company, designing and making all the aspect of the production. All my life I’ve been working in different disciplines in the Arts. I also use my knowledge to present workshops for adults and children, something that I love to do. I have diplomas in Drawing, Ceramics and in Teaching for adult education. For several years I was a Spanish language assistant at a middle school, where I also ran many art workshops, including award winning designs for local carnivals. In 2004 I came third in an important costume competition, awarded by Zandra Rhodes. More recently, I have published my first illustrated children’s book, “The Frog’s Kiss”. I can be writing for a long time but that I think gives you a little idea of me.
