My artistic career started at the age of 8 when I was admitted to the National Conservatory of Music in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador to study classical music for 12 years, graduating as a piano teacher. I studied graphic design and fine arts at ESPOL in Ecuador. I studied Etching and Engraving with the artist Alejandra Winkhaus in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Afterwards, I returned to ESPOL, getting my bachelor’s degree in arts specializing in Audiovisual Production. In 2014, I studied Pre-Columbian ceramics at the MAAC, I learned the basics of ceramics, pre-columbian technologies & techniques. The same year I won a scholarship to study Batik at Universitas Negeri Semarang in Indonesia.
In 2018, I came to live in New Orleans and years later I moved to Mandeville. Since Summer 2021, I've started to participate in local Art Markets and since the Fall of 2022 in juried markets inside and outside Louisiana.
Statement: Being born and raised in a plurinational country influenced the pursuit of ancestral knowledge, the cosmovision, myths & rituals of primal nations. I learned the wisdom of Aents, a word in Shuar (the language of the Shuar Nation from the Amazon) that describes that everything is alive: humans, animals, supernatural beings, plants, and objects.
The illumination produced by this multicultural dialogue through their diverse visions and knowledge is what I reflect in my work. Nature has force, everything is alive, & everything has power, this is manifested in the visions. I create art with the pure intention to bring soul to objects and transmits Aents.
Ceramics: Hand build porcelain with details in slip. I paint with glazes and underglazes to show both textures & details in gold luster. My vision is art that bring soul to objects.
