At an early age, my innate curiosity found this magical atmosphere where walls, clothes and furniture spotted with bright pigments were welcoming me into a new charming universe. This is how I remember my first art class, when my heart surrendered to a new dimension where everything is allowed through the experience of color and texture. Ever since that instance, I’ve never stopped drawing and painting.
I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Textile Design in Mexico, followed by a Master’s Degree in Fashion Design in Spain. I have accumulated over 15 years of extensive experience working as a fashion designer in diverse international clothing companies. This has allowed me to travel the globe working in multicultural environments while researching new trends and pursuing inspiration.
Becoming a mom initiated in me a world of colorful scribbles, silly made up songs, spontaneous giggling and the fresh view of the world through the eyes of a child. It also revived my love for children’s books. Therefore, I decided to continue on building my experience as an illustrator at The Cooper Institute, Parsons The New School for Design, The School of Visual Arts in New York City and The Rutgers University Council of Children’s literature.
My paintings are created with acrylic, watercolor, paper cut and color pencils on paper.
I love, love, love painting, and I would be delighted to create something special for you.
