Creativity is part of my life

I was born and rise in Madrid sorounded by art, my school was located in an old palace full of greek statures and my  field trips  were to the Prado Museum. Part of my homework was to draw and color  my own world maps.

 

At age 20  I married in Madrid, my husband was memeber of the American Air Force. We stayed in this city  during 5 years and I had two children, during this time  I had de oportunity to take  classes of oil painting and charcoal drawing at the studios of  well known Spanish artist.

 

The Air Force move the family to other 3 countries,  in each new home I always manage to have a spare room o corner ready to paint when I had the time.

 

My creativity help me during the lonely times of moving and finding new friends. Living in different countries give me the oportunity to meet other artist, to have exchange of ideas and to learn other tecniques.

 

During the years in the US I  obtained my  Bachelors of Science degree from  Trento State University  with a minor in  Art.

 

In Englad I used pastel chalk to create  landscape scenes. I had the oportunity  to join the local artist association and to exhibit with them as well  as at solo exhibitions.

 

In 1993 I moved to a small town by  the Mediterranean sea, near Barcelona.  The sea become the sole purpose in my paintings.

My exhibition were seashells, sailing boats, beaches, palm trees and life under weater.

 

 

 

Trips to other countries and cultures have been a great resources of ideas.  I created 25 paintings of jungle, mangroves and tropical flowers, after visiting Mexico, Santo Domingo and Jamaica.

 

I created the JEWELRY COLLECTION CHINESE COIN, after my visit to China, based on the coins used in this country.

 

About 15 years ago I found a fired enamel course in my town, and after a couple of years I became hooked on this medium.  Applying enamel and fire to transform a piece of metal into a beutiful piece of art is like magic.

 

I found jewelry making a great way to apply all my ideas in a samll piece. My jewelry is pieces of art to wear, to adorn a  woman neck,  instead of just  hanging in the wall.

 

I have my own estudio since 2006,  creating new collections since them.
