Seville, 1989.
Infantes lives and works between Spain and Milan.

Infantes studied at the Central Saint Martins at the University of the Arts in London, where she graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Textile Design.

Her work acts as a bridge between art and design through her use of textiles. Infantes’s practice focuses on wool and its uses throughout history as she tries to give a new value to this material that was once used as a bargaining chip.

She has worked for different companies such as Lego, Christopher Farr, CCTapis and Lexus.

Some of her work has been shown as part of Question Time at Pattio Herreriano (2021), at A Crack in the mountain at C3A in Cordoba (2021), at Transhumancia in García Galería (Madrid, 2019)  and Social life of a material at Gal Gallery (London, 2018), curated by Arvida Bystrom.

She has also been part of group exhibitions such as Entre las formas que van hacia la sierpe y las formas que buscan el cristal (Between the forms that go towards the serpent and the forms that seek glass) at the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (Seville, 2020) curated by Joaquín Jesús Sanchez and Roxana Gazdzinski; and Brain Waves at the Lethaby Gallery (London, 2017) curated by Ulrike Oberlack.

She was the recipient of the Texprint Award in 2017, which led her to exhibiting in different galleries in the UK and in Paris. In 2020, she was awarded a prize at Design: A Voyage in Italy and Spain by the Italian Embassy in Madrid.
