What impact do you want to have with your art?
I want to create new proposals that speak

Art to me is the feeling transmitted by the relation between (El Sabor y Los Contrastes) Taste and contrast, which in my work is represented by color, composition and form.

The contrast(events) that we experience through time gives taste to our lives, and my purpose is to represent it and materialize it through art.

My work is mostly Acrylic on Canvas, involving layers that shimmer in a shy manner, sometimes using the emptiness (blank canvas) as a color participating in the composition. I also play with words related to the work meaning, to accentuate my intention.

Moving between abstract art and illustration is very important for her because it keeps bringing to her mind new ideas to develop, it is fascinating for her to work in two diverse art “areas” that takes different creative process but both can be influenced by each other
