Her vision is involved in the drama and the future of humanity both in the raw and violent deserts of her series “The culture of violence” and also in the placid sunsets of her watercolors with enigmatic flowers and the innovative universe of video art.
In her works, which have been exhibited in local and foreign galleries, we see that her penetrating gaze goes beyond canvas, words and forms, taking us into territories of emotion, in paintings that somehow tie in with the Magical Realism of Latin American literature. In her series “Love-Erotica”, the painting “The Sand of Captains” pays tribute to the great writer JORGE AMADO, deceased only days before his 89th birthday, and is an allusion to his book, “The Captains of Sands”.

     These video tapes belong to a series entitled “Out of a Squiggle” (1, 2 and 3), and each video is accompanied by a little explanatory book with drawings that illustrate the subject matter. These video-books, by virtue of their synthesis more than the strength of their images, enable us to teach in fifteen minutes what would otherwise take hours to present. They offer a way to make the training of professionals dynamic while stimulating creativity and creative apperception” in this era, characterized by vertiginous change and rapid communications.
