Since graduating with BA in Visual Arts from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), I have been based in Bristol, UK since 2008, I have been based in Bristol, UK where I was part of a vibrant and diverse comunity at Coexist Studios, Hamilton House, Stokes Croft. Recently, I have moved to Mivart Studios, Easton
My work has been exhibited widely throughout more than 30 exhibitions in Mexico, Colombia, the UK and Spain. Highlighted shows include 2005 Women in Mexican Fine Arts, Museum of Mexico City; The View, Gallery of Fine Arts, Cali, Colombia & Sector Reforma Guadalajara Jalisco, México; 2012-2017 Coexist Hamilton House Open Studios Bristol; 2017 Threshold Festival, Liverpool, UK; 2014 Fascinate digital arts Conference and Showcase, Falmouth University and 2013, 2014 & 2018 Camaradas UK & México Art competition, Espacio Gallery, London, UK.
In September 2011, I was invited to participate in the performance “From Morning till night” by Katerina Seda at the Tate Modern, London.
A sense of uncertainty and continuing self questioning drives my daily practice. Nothing ever feels certain in the process of painting, and this uncertainty drove me to paint through the ever-changing symbolism of water.
A lot of my paintings start from painting on the floor; through the plasticity of the paints and mediums. Water or air emerge from the simple action of making a mark on the canvas. Other paintings are inspired by both my own photography and online images, which I alter digitally, both before and during the process of painting.
Through my work, I aim to invoke a sense of the sublime.
I am also concerned with the impact of digital technologies on ‘traditional’ landscape art-forms. I have sought to engage the general public with my work in new and original ways. In recent years, I have collaborated with a digital artist to augment a number of my exhibitions with generative music and also to create several virtual reality installations using my work.
