Bio & Statement

I was born 4 years later May 68; the beginning of political freedoms all this awoke up my social conscience. At my parents' house use to come colorful people: Artists, poets, philosophers, athletes and socially committed people. My family dissolution few years later, gave me Inner fortress and emotional self-sufficiency.

I was a shy girl, I found in the universal language a way to communicate with the outside world. I also expressed myself through surrealist poetry. My family was creative and encouraged our creativity. I graduated in Fine Arts in Barcelona. Travels across Europe broadened my horizons; I lived in Sweden and Paris. I have always been true to myself. My leitmotiv and passion is art. I have worked in theater scenography, performance and music .

My studio is everywhere. I am nomadic. I am Guardian of the Planet. I was specialized in sculpture, Performance, Land-art, Povera and recycled materials artworks.

Working as a teacher allows me to perform and to carry out collective projects. I paint with my fingers, hands and feet. I like textures and material painting. I usually work on several pieces at the same time and let them rest for a while before finishing them. I like extra-large projects: murals, scenography and collective artworks.

I like to bring to life the secret essence of things. Everything you see is susceptible to drop it to the canvas, or to be a work of art. Creation in capital letters is the Great Masterpiece in which we all dwell.
