Statement

My work comes from the search for a language of its own and from textile experimentation, working for many years with natural fibers and traditional basketry techniques from my country, added to the knowledge of the jewelry trade that have allowed me to generate a proposal around textile bodies and wefts. Creating biomorphic objects, textile creatures that dialogue between the organic and the poetic, weaving identities, interweaving imaginary. Transforming these objects into pieces of art jewelry.
