I am an artist because I like to express my particular point of view of beauty and color, and I want other eyes to see what is important to me. It is essential to study and evolve my work, to experiment with different materials, techniques and styles, the combination of gold leaf and oil, the freedom of the spatula, the detail in eyes and mouth, for me that is a woman, a combination of delicacy and strength, freedom and color. My inspiration is love, strength, beauty, magic, equity, equality and spirituality. For me art means everything, and I believe that through the beauty of art mankind is free.
After a while I began to take drawing courses in the academy of San Carlos and in some houses of culture where I realized how essential art was for me. As time has passed, I have continued to work on it, little by little and now, using technology I give movement to some drawings or paintings of my own, first playing, then discovering different communication possibilities, experiencing a little and now, recreating with the new technological tools.
Recently, I finished a postgraduate in art history that has allowed me to know another perspective of art and to prove that whatever it is, my being seeks to be in contact with this discipline: always carry it in me in all its forms and possibilities of existing and adapting it even to the new, to the movement, to the digital.
I started with group exhibitions, going solo, participating in events like Photo September in Mexico.
I learned to print color photographs, black and white, cyanotype. One of my most representative achievements has been to exhibit collectively at the University Museum of Chopo in Mexico City in 2005, where I participated with my photographs in cyanotype, and at the Instituto Cultural Arte AC, in the city of Monterrey, My photographs are in Permanent Collection of the Museum of the City of Santiago de Querétaro, at the Art Cultural Institute of the City of Monterrey, at the CIF of the City of Puebla, and at the National Photo Library of the INAH of the City of Pachuca.
