Artist Review


My artwork is influenced by many years of exposure to multicultural environments my love for art and my passion for colors.

My continuous interest in exploring different subjects, using different mediums and observing my surrounding resulted in a variety of paintings.  

My relationship with colors has been always intense.

My greatest compliment is to have someone look at my art and feel an emotion that remarks.


Artist Profile

I was born in Santa Cruz, Bolivia where I lived for my first 17 years.

I developed a deep appreciation and love for art, while I was studying Architecture in  Brazil. Combined with a few years living in Singapore and a few years of apprenticeship with different Instructors in the visual art field, at Torpedo Art Center in Alexandria, I was inspired to create art and find different ways to express it. I live with my husband and two sons in Virginia, USA.
