Born in Souther Spain in 1979, at age 19 I moved to Paris (France) where I became involved in feminist, queer and anarchist movements. After having obtained my degree in Comparative Literature at University Paris VIII, I pursued a BA in Studio Arts at Ecole Nationale de Beaux-Arts in Toulouse (France). Since 2008 I have been living in Canada, where I have worked as a visual artists for different artist-run spaces, social justice organizations, art education institutions. I am also the founder with Paulie McDermid of theatre collective Colectivo Pez Luna / Moonfish Collective
My work has been exhibited across Canada (Montreal - La Centrale Powerhouse, MAI -, Toronto - A Space, Textile Museum of Canada, AGO - , St. Jonh's - Eastern Edge -, London - The Forest City -) as well as in the International Biennial of Quebec City (2017). Internationally, my work has been shown in several locations in Spain (including CentroCentro Madrid), South Korea, the Netherlands, Germany and Costa Rica.

As an artist my work aims to tell stories, mostly of what is not revealed to the eye but lives within our everyday reality. Specially those emotions, events and situations that are been kept hidden or secret because of social norms and conditioning. In my art I explore secrecy, silence and how art may become a tool for revealing, and therefore, making the audience and the artist aware.
