Born in Colombia in 1957, her art is figurative, without detaching from the gestures of those women, which led her to other expressions that she captures with her lens, which made her paint them and make her first exhibition in 1976, at the Antonin Fayolle gallery, in her hometown.

In the search to universalize his past, without staying in it, the Caribbean Sea, the carnival, the utensils of those muses allow him to reaffirm his visual dialect and to deposit in nature, the primordial source of his artistic creation.

He was part of “Bain de Soleil”, traveling exhibition, which began in 2016, at the Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center, Bogotá, the following year he moved to the Museum of Modern Art, Cartagena, to finish at the Mission of International Relations, Montpellier, France, from June to September he was in Espace Louis Feuillade, Lunel, France, a Gothic church, converted into a Cultural Center, to end in November, in the gallery of the building of La Aduana, Barranquilla.

In 2017, he was a fundamental part as an artist in it Le M.U.R, Pérols, France, a mural based on the floaters and street vendors of the Colombian Caribbean.

She studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Universidad del Atlántico, where she graduated as a teacher in Plastic Arts, 1975-1979 and took as a model for four years, a plus-size Palenqueras. From 1980 to 1991, she studied sculpture and engraving at the School of Fine Arts, Cartagena, with master Humberto Giangrandi.

The Colombian Caribbean vibrates with its colors and travels in her permanent artistic tours, where the rhythms of her land invite her to dance, to make expressive the laughter she always carries.

She has managed to make visible many themes, which fall asleep in the midst of the informal and everyday, full of a rich language, whose bacanería keeps many people standing, who go through the streets in a constant sound of the rummage, where many artists do not see anything, but that she knows how to rescue for the good of art, where she manages to undress poverty through its vivid colors.
