“ I feel very fortunate to be able to express myself through the visual arts. I sketch whenever I have a moment; a pad and a micron pen are with me wherever I go. Sketching is calming and meditative for me, as well as makes me see the world around me and appreciate its beauty in something that may be over looked in a busy life.”

Over the past five years the artist turned to painting in acrylics. En plein air or in a studio, she have been studying clouds and landscapes, showing her love of nature and hiking and slowly evolving towards more expressionistic works.

“ I have carved out a couple of days for painting, and spend the rest of the week visualizing my next painting. When I am finally have time to paint, I paint quickly with passion, finally bringing to canvas what I have been painting in my mind.”

The award winning artist grew up in the New England area; daughter of parents from Argentina, now resides for the past 30 years in Connecticut. She has BS degree in both Studio Art and Business from Marymount College, NY and her work has been exhibited in over 50 solo and juried shows in galleries and museums throughout the tristate area.
