Raised in the millinery workshop of her mother and with a father painter, Henar Iglesias studied mathematics while learning the maternal trade. That way she discovered the magic of feathers and seeing that there was no training in feather art as such, she decided to specialize in that trade. In Mexico she got to know the pre-Columbian tradition of the amantecas, which opened her the feather mosaic universe.
She has worked as a feather artist in the field of headgear and clothing, combining this profession with the work with feathers for a French furniture author. For 10 years, they have held more than 20 projects together, the last one in 2016. Prior to 2014, she participated in several group exhibitions at the Bat Gallery and Espacio Valverde, both in Madrid.
She has been nominated for the "Loewe International Craft Prized" in 2019.
