I was born in Bogota Colombia and began painting with my left hand at the age of 3 in a house surrounded by two forests in a very cold city called Tunja. Some years later I moved back to Bogota and studied graphic design and Illustration before moving to Barcelona to study and paint more.
After twelve years in sunny Cataluña I took my brushes, colour pencils, papers, fabrics, pins, needles to Edinburgh, a very inspiring city!
This website shows the breadth and diversity of my work, demonstrating a variety of techniques; mixed media, fabrics, embroidery, screen printing and textile folding, using a mixture of vintage and contemporary textiles to create quirky images and objects, pieces of art, from collage and illustrations to soft sculptures, tactile objects, also some fashion accessories.
Using found and vintage I give new life and significance to all materials used, to obtain unique results and create unique pieces.
