About Me

Visual artist

 Design, art, illustration have always been my passion.
Graduated from the Fashion Design University at Jannette Klein. I started my career as

fashion designer in Mexico City.


 I have been working in the world of fashion, art and design for more than 20 years. My passion for 
art has always injected happiness into my heart.

What is reflected in my design and paintings it is inspired by Mexico, in my roots, in my country.
Celebrated by an original, exotic style defined by bright colors.

After having closed my jewelry, art and fashion store in Brussels in December 2020, it is
when I have dedicated myself 100% to painting.
