I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, where I received a BA in Graphic Design. Later I furthered my studies at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale with a AS in Graphic Design.
During my time in Colombia I studied with artist David Manzur where I was first inspired by art.
Then here in the United States I have studied in the Summit Art Center, Summit-NJ; Art Center of South Florida, Miami Beach-FL; Old School Square, Delray Beach-FL and The Art Students League-NYC.
At the Art Students League of New York I studied life drawing with artist Costa Vavagiaskis and painting with artists Larry Poons and Paola Poons, who both inspired me to enter to the world of abstract art.
Workshops with artists Brenda Zappitell, Sally Cooper, Francine Tint.
More recently I have been studying under New York based Australian abstract artist, Peter Bonner.
I continue to develop my artistic skills and processes further, challenging my artistic identity.
My work has been awarded at Art Serve - Ft Lauderdale (first prize); ArtSlant 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th Showcase winners; Phyllis Harriman Gallery at the Art Student League - NYC (blue dot recognition).
Internationally I have shown my work at the Gallery G1313 in Toronto, Canada.
