I am a Mixed Media Artist and passionate about my daily work.

I like to intuitively incorporate different materials needed for each work.

My career began with painting. I continued in this media for several years. However, once I began working with textiles, things changed.

I seemed to quickly connect with the special environment created by threads, fabrics, scissors, chalk, measuring tapes and sewing machines that I had been exposed to throughout my childhood sitting on my grandparents' workbench - both were tailors. I was surrounded by an artistic craft my entire life as a carpenter's daughter and a live model for a seamstress aunt. It is quite easy for me to fuse textile artisanship with new technologies. I also like paper, ink, magazines; in fact, this was how I came to understand printmaking especially that constant play of negative and positive space.

 

Anyway, I assume that my aesthetic language is primarily centered on the creation of collages, using diverse techniques throughout my artistic training and experiences. That’s why, lately, focus on Mixed Media Art, I see as my natural creativity pushes me to experiment with different techniques, which allows me to materialize creations with collage, engraved printmaking, etching and/or textile.

 

Coincident, I realized my big interest for Chinese Horoscope, a method of prediction, as old as the Chinese culture itself, and, at the same time, it is linked to the animal world, have been two of the main reasons that’s why I want to continue researching and creating inspired works by this millennial astrological system using the different media that I manage.
