BIOGRAPHY

I understand life as the ultimate adventure. Every day holds its unique mystery. I intend to explore every corner of this fabulous maze we call the human experience. I only count on very few yet determining conditioning traits in which I constantly dive deep to explore the limits, shapeless but ever-so-present borders, as I walk towards my fate. I embrace life as a teacher, experiences as tools, and my present circumstance as a fleeting opportunity to fulfill my destiny. 


I was born and had the gift of experiencing childhood and adolescence in a country full of wonder, Colombia. Growing up in a bubble in the middle of a world tormented by social inequality, violence, and a reality hard to grasp for any young soul, made me one of the millions immersed in what is now known as magical realism, which, in truth,  holds only a pinch of fantasy and a large amount of hope. 

 

 At 26, I took a turn in the maze, following my heart. In that path, I moved to Spain. The story intensified and revealed new ways of being to be explored. I became a foreigner, a wife, a student, a teacher, and a mother. To all of these, I devoted my energy and focus for many years. A divorce later, and once my children became old enough to demand their independence, I found myself with the most precious and endless bounty of opportunity a human can posses, time. Time in my hands, not only to apprehend a new reality but also to express my own experience with the passion of an endless explorer. I found my way back to creativity, attempting to write a novel, long hidden in the lines of my life, and paint! as I used to love as a child.

 

Every painting I create is the sum of  my  experience, with which I draw a testimony of the woman I've become and continue to experience.  

I hope to share my experience through art in the hope that it will inspire you to trust your calling and to accompany your experience as I add color and beauty to the landscape you create every day.
