    Lives in Puerto Rico and works in an interdisciplinary way with sculpture, drawing and photography. Interested in opening a conversation about life from a personal stance. Submerged within different artesanal processes as a way of thinking. In her recent projects she is working with textiles, dyes, woven fabric and natural coal. In some of her central work you may find a participatory sculpture, made with wood and nylon belts, titled Escultura Utópica, knot work with blue dyed rope type of kipu inspired by a map of genealogical origin, On carnivorous plants and a black an orange embroidery of a turmeric root, crosses. Exploring in this manner her own tools of knowledge.

    “I try to place my self in a space… before form and after language.”
