The artist lives in Mexico City, where her work contributes to the growth and diversity of the contemporary art initiatives which identify Mexico nowadays. Her art is mainly characterized by two unique concepts through which the artist leaves her personal mark: the first one is the representation of Mexican culture and traditions.
This has not only made her art very colorful but has also given her the opportunity to show illustrative aspects of her country in a way that allows the public to give Mexico a closer look. The second one is the hidden symbols and elements in her art. Through them, she includes some of the main features of the places or subjects she is representing, inviting the public to truly engage in observing the art, making them discover fascinating hidden figures that will reveal the truth of what the artist is really trying to communicate.
