Taibe was an author and an illustrator of children's books, at the beginning of her professional life. Since 2005, she has been working as a jewellery designer and artist. In 2015 Taibe founded the jewellery school, “El Tallercito” in Santiago.


To be creative is essential to me, it’s a way of living and interpreting life. As I explore my mind, I explore the material, translating my emotions and thoughts into an object. To be free is essential to me. The creative process is the closest emotion to freedom in this oppressive society.

After many years of practice, my work has evolved to be more spontaneous. I compose a piece intuitively. Using both intuition and experimentation, I integrate technique and design. One is the exploration of the material and its innate limitations, the other is the content of my ideas.
