As an illustrator, my works are based on a variety of techniques to create
and illustrate an idea on a specific topic in each project.
I find my strengths in the use of different materials, such as watercolor, paint, paper cutouts, paper mache,
as well as other not so common tools (wires, scouring pads, etc.), paper sets and collages.
I also carry this fascination with materials to my Art Therapy studies.
Lived experiences, my work as an Illustrator and medical studies have led me to Art Therapy.
In February 2014 my daughter Olivia Elena was born and passed away.
The trauma of losing my daughter, I think, is the cause my alopecia totalis.
Today I am a mother of two more children who fill my life with happiness, chaos and laughter.
