As a person I am very disciplined, hard-working and passionate. As a painter I´m very versatile, I have developed different techniques such as oil, watercolor, pastels, acrylic, engraving, drawing in all kind of surfaces, wall, paper, street, canvas. I can work in very small format but also I can do paintings of 40 x 26 meters in a very short time. I´m fine artist and street painter, specialized in 3D art.

I´m the only mexican woman who has the official title of "maestra madonnara" the highest possible honor from the most respected and traditional Italian street painting event. Within this beautiful artistic expression, I had obtained 18 prizes in Mexico, Italy, Gernany, Denmark, Holland, England, France and US.
This 2018 I´m celebrating my 30th career anniversary but through these years I have also promoted art with workshops and organizing ephemeral art festivals in my hometown, more than 800 artists and 2,000 kids and young people participated by coloring the streets.
I began my career as a painter after winning a children’s art competition at the age of 4. Since then, I had earned 29 local, 11 national, and 23 international awards. At the age of 11, I organized my first solo exhibition. To date, I have had 53 solo and 90 collective art shows in various cities across Mexico, the United States, Cuba, and Spain.
