Statement

Currently based in Geneva, where she is a member of the Atelier GE grave, a printmaking workshop where she creates her etchings. She obtained a Fine Arts degree with a minor in printmaking in Santiago, Chile at Finis Terrae University. Traveling is a main interest, and as a result she has lived in unusual corners of the world as Dili in East Timor and Bangui in the Central African Republic among others. These expat experiences have increased her fascination and concern for people and nature, and how their societies are built.

She blends her characters with the concepts of impermanence and waking dreams producing drawings, prints, paintings and installations in an eclectic style.

Exploring the concept of change and movement, the organic versus man-made has become the common thread in her recent work. Emergent notions of the evolution of change and the dichotomy between the natural and artificial become apparent: portraying hypothetical changes in living creatures, their metamorphosis, their interactions and the possible hybridization between biological and artificial life.
