Biography

(1991-1993) Self taught phase. Using a Native style, she creates almost 150 pieces, with an original technique using paint for cloth over canvas, where Scandinavian legends, myths, tales and fantasies are the main theme. Between 1993 and 1996, she gets into oil with Alejandro Lizana, painter and president of the National Society of Fine Arts. In 1994, she starts an intensive course with Master Eduardo Castillo and finishes her studies with the outstanding painter Mar?a Eugenia Reyes (1997-1998).

Artist Statement:
Since she is four until she is twenty-seven years old, the dance comes to be in the core of her life and simultaneously she maintains sporadic romances with Painting, Theater and Literature. In the search of a more tangible art she looks after the painting coming to be at the present day her great love. At the beginning of this engagement, things happened in a rather playful and innocent way, all which is completely demonstrated in her Native works, in which she experiences with techniques and colors that allude directly to her Scandinavian ancestors.

Entering into a more mature stage, she works the oil, instance that provides her the stability and the so much yearned pattern of expression, which allows her to be able to represent properly the legends, the myths and the dreams that nest in her mind and her.
