I was born in Buenos Aires, but my childhood and teenage years were in Posadas, Misiones. I always liked textures, I used to gather pieces of cloth and paper of any kind, sequins, ribbons, melted crayons, candle, sand, Indian ink, cardboard –that is, everything within and out of reach. I worked with the textures I dreamed of, even as a result of nightmares. I could not specify how, or why I began to be attracted by textures –probably because of the lace or embroidered cloth I have always been collecting. What I do know is that they are part of the way I see and feel the world. I need to see, have, and show them. I have always thought it is fantastic to mix, assemble and arrange objects in non-conventional manners and generate new objects.
I have always wanted to be an artist –I changed the piano for fine arts. At 5, I told my Mum, a piano teacher, that I wanted to be a painter -“to paint pictures, not walls”.
Following this drive, I came to Buenos Aires to study in the National School of Fine Arts “Prilidiano Pueyrredón” and obtained my degree in Visual Arts with Paint Orientation I.U.N.A. Today, I am a teacher of Systems of Representation, chaired by Prof. Saggese.
I also worked several years in Art-Therapy for psychotic patients. I was a teacher in the Day Hospital of the Mental Health Dept, Hospital de Clínicas “José de San Martín”, and orator in several Congresses and Seminars organized by APSA (Association of Argentina Psychiatry), and AAP (Argentine Association of Psychiatrists).
When I was a girl I used to create my own “toys” with cardboard, boxes, lace (as collage). This fascination for textures was reflected in my works
with mixed techniques, as the design of bijou (earrings and necklaces). It was this way that the series “START” was conceived, a set of pieces with various materials: cloth, metal, glitter, paper.
In all my pieces there are details that reflect how I feel and see the world. Ornamented, complex, mysterious? Reading is not unequivocal, I think that art can be built.
