The artist plays with the infinite concept of the exterior space, everything that occurs outside of us that we do not know. Her work captures images/fiction and sensations that seek to be translated and re-expressed through color, density, and temperature. The visualness of her painting constitutes an interesting result which, more than figurative, returns to an abstract technique of oil on canvas, incorporating spots, dripping, and organic forms coming from spontaneous gestures, as well as incorporating more traditional elements coming from design and graphics. The subject almost always comes from a moment, it makes a transversal cut through an instant in which the sensation or image is perceived and from there, through drawings and notes, she creates and conceives each piece.
