A peculiar work method
… “I am a perfectionist, probably influenced by my education in Germany. Each stroke and detail has to be perfectly detailed, balanced and harmonized, that´s why I work on the short distance in horizontal and correct in vertical, taking perspective and contemplating the work in all its dimension.
“I need the structure of my work to be well organized and balanced, so I need the geometric trace. The color gives me the spontaneity necessary to transmit freshness – vitality and dynamism. My palette, it’s pure colors and strong contrasts. “
The work in different formats
In its artistic growth has a great importance the research work, which leads her to experiment in the most varied formats being the canvas the one who collects all her emotions and returns them calm and organized and the textile the one that allows her to be more dynamic and free.
